Designer of the Week: Carolyn Craig

Blog Editor’s Comment:  I met Craig, as she likes to be called, for the first time in 2013, at Tat Days in Greenfield, IN (this was before I purchased the Tatting Corner).  We were in a class with the Shuttle Brothers, and not only was she doing everything they were teaching, she was also in the process of designing her 3D Fairies.  I am in awe of her design skills.  Everyone should own a copy of both of her books (available only at the Tatting Corner)!
