logoUpcoming Event


As we all know.... all too well, the Corona virus has been the cause of many plans having to be cancelled or postponed.
We, at the Fringe, have been having that same talk ourselves. And as a group we have had to make the hard decision to postpone our 15th Tatting weekend from this September 2020 and hold it September 24-25 2021.
WIth the uncertainty of air travel, borders being open and the group numbers being allowed, it was the safest decision for all of us.
Please stay safe and tat on!!

Theme for 2020/21:  "Eye (heart) Tatting|

Hope you can join us in 2021!!!

About Us

The idea for a new tatting group – The Fringe Element Tatters – originated at a Tat ’n Chat in Creemore, Ontario in August 2005.

We are based in Southern Ontario, but have members from across Canada, the US and even the UK, Australia and India.

Membership fees are just one small tatted heart per year – although we gladly accept more.  These hearts are used at public events to help fulfill our mission “to show and teach as many people as possible how to tat”.

We encourage our members to participate in tatting exchanges throughout the year and organize local Tat ‘n Chat’s in their area.  Each September we host our major event (this year in Cambridge, Ontario).  Classes for our “Fall into Tatting” weekend always include beginner needle & shuttle tatting as well as more advanced techniques.  Because our group is multi-talented, we also include a non-tatting needlecraft.
