We knew Sister Agnes Fischer’s tatting was good but now she has the awards to prove it!
Sister swept the tatting division and received a Best of Show award at this year’s Brown County Fair. The seven classes of tatting in the senior category were: Tatting as Edging (Best of Show), Tatting on Clothing, Tatting on Decoration or Ornament, Tatting on Home Furnishing, Tatting on Jewelry, and Tatting Other. For this last category, Sister made a rosary from a pattern written in Italian.
As a tatting instructor in UW-Green Bay’s Lifelong Learning Institute, Sister plans to encourage her students to submit entries for next year’s fair.
Congratulations, Sister Agnes!
