In short, Spotlight, the Australian arts and craft store, had announced through their FB and website, the opening of an outlet in Malaysia. It is going to be their first outlet in Malaysai. The nearest outlet before this is in Singapore. A few week before the opening, a member of Spotlight team contacted our local craft guild, the Arts & Craft Guild,KL & Selangor, inviting members to submit a propsal for conducting craft classes at the new outlet. I made a sample of tatting for the store to display. The thread used is Milford, which is being sold in Spotlight.
After a series of meeting, everything was set up and we were ready for the opening, which was on 12th July. I will be teaching tatting, naturally. As part of the launch a number of Guild members put up demos of crafts where classes will be offered at Spotlight. They have provided two classrooms for the instructors.

The highlight of the two days was when a very special visitor stopped to look at my tatting - a princess no less! We had a short chat about tatting when she told me that she needletats and I said I could teach her how to use the shuttle if she would like, :-)
