Dear tatting friends,
perhaps you have never heard from this little town in South Italy, but perhaps you have seen a film about Jesus Crist, which was made in the old town, which is called "sassi", which means stones or rockies. All the old houses are caves, only the front side is embellished with cutted pieces of rocks, called "tufi". I have been invited to make an exposition (click here to see the pictures) there in a cave of the old town, where all the caves are now beeing restaured and filled with artists, restaurants and bed and breakfasts. This to conserve the old town for tourists and to give it new life.
The lady you see near the mirrors with crocheted embellishment is the organizer and owner of the cave. She is also owner of a yarn shop in the modern town and she shows here wonderful knitted and crocheted items.
