Tatting artist Brown featured at Town Hall

Carollyn Brown of Farragut can get completely lost in tatting. “Sometimes I feel I am tatting some complex DNA chain and thoroughly enjoy intricate directions or very old directions that are hard to understand,” she said. “The possibilities are endless and I find that different groups of people tend to gravitate to a style or look.” Town of Farragut presents Brown as its featured artist for July and August. The exhibit, on the second floor of the rotunda in Farragut Town Hall, features tatted doilies, a baby bonnet, ornaments and baby clothes plus handmade shuttles from her collection. Winding cotton thread around two tiny shuttles creates tatted lace. “This tatting lace is, of course, made with different-sized threads and nowadays, there are many colors to choose from,” Brown said. “Jewelry and frames and doilies, purses and edging can be designed and made with just one or two shuttles.” She referred to tatting as “an old art that is not as lost as it used to be.” She uses her blog, Carollyn’s Tatting Blog, to share tips and patterns with tatters from around the world.

Farragut Treasure Hunt

Inaugural Farragut Treasure Hunt is a creative and fun way for customers to further “discover” Town of Farragut businesses, leading toward a bevy of prizes for three lucky customers — and one prize for scores of other customers. With most of the credit for the Treasure Hunt concept going to Wendy Smith, Town Public Relations and Marketing coordinator, and Lauren Cox, Special Event and Program coordinator with Town government’s Parks & Leisure Services department, the Hunt begins July 31. “Businesses have really stepped up with some great prizes,” Smith said. “I think when people will see the prizes then they’re going to be motivated to go for it.” Participants simply go to facebook.com and search “Town of Farragut,” then find a menu on the left side of the page for “Events,” then click and search for “Farragut Treasure Hunt.”
