I was my first time putting up a table at a bazaar and I was not looking to make significant sales, though I did sell some bookmarks and tatting doodles.

I started them off with making double stitches on chains with two different coloured threads. This seemed the proven method as mentioned by so many tatters before, and it worked this time too. They caught the double stitches soon enough and had no problem with the rings after that. Even if I did not make much from the sales of my tatting, I was really happy to be able to add to the number of tatters. I hope they'll keep up with it.
