Christy Castille

Breaux Bridge, LA

Inspired by my great-grandmothers shuttle tatting, I learned how to tat at the age of 9.  Today I proudly share the history, teach others how to shuttle tat, and preserve their family heirlooms for generations to come.  You can find me demonstrating throughout the year at many folklife events or handmade shows in the state.

Some of the events you can find me demonstrating:

State Folk Festival, LSU Rural Life Museum, Kent House, Audubon Historic Site, Louisiana Highland Games & Celtic Festival, Old Spanish Trail Celebration, Sunflower Festival, West Baton Rouge Parish Museum.
