After retiring, we moved to Winter Garden, Florida, where I continue to teach tatting and smocking.I am able to sell what I make to ladies interested in the old arts. They saw the poor people eating grass so they brought out their beautiful laces, sold them, and gave the money to the poor.
Now I lecture to ladies in Florida that do needlework.
I sell tatted earrings, necklaces, tatting on handkerchiefs and pillow cases, in frames, on note cards, Easter and Christmas balls, baby booties, bridal veils, and tiaras.
