a pink ribbon for Rimini

My Facebook's friends already know that I involved tatters in a special project, for the event "First Italian Tatting Meeting", to be held in Rimini, 17-19 May.

(On the right, the pattern is by Muskaan,

In the Facebook group "Chiacchierino: Filo, Amore e Fantasia" , I suggested to tat a little pink awareness ribbon, that would be taken to Rimini and left there as a present/reminder of the event, to the organiser Mrs Stefania Di Cesare ("P&D Original Design").

Why the pink ribbon choice? By chance, Meeting's weekend is the same chosen by Komen Italia for the "Race for the cure", an international event to raise awareness (and money) for the breast cancer disease, the organisation for Italy is

I've had the permission to use, for our public event, the pattern "Ring & Chain Tatted Awareness Ribbon" © Lenore English, 2001, that is free online at this address:

In case tatters can't attend the meeting in Rimini, they would post their pictures in the Facebook group.

It can be easy tatted also by beginners and very fast. I hope that this project will be accepted and the pattern liked.

I drew a visual pattern, with text in Italian:

Thank you very much in advance to every tatter.

    Thank you so much for posting this. Your timing was perfect. A good friend of mine died from breast cancer two weeks ago. It was quite a shock as she was very young (40 years old) and her health declined very quickly. I am making a quilt for her two sons with different squares that represent her life. I hadn't thought about putting any tatting on the quilt. But I will tat a ribbon to put on it using your pattern. Thanks so much for sharing it.

  4. Beautiful and thank you always nice to be aware and have a tatted ribbon for the cause 💖

  5. Thank you for the pattern as soon as my hand gets better hopefully before the event I will tat a ribbon. I have many memories of Rimini, I visited the town back in 1959.

    1. Thank you dear Margaret! Wow, that's a long time ago! What do you think about another visit, next month? :-f


Thank you very much for all your nice comments.
