As a child, Alan was taught to crochet and worked in the fine thread. He even helped put himself through college and seminary by making and selling crocheted angels and other ornaments. He got interested in the dying art of tatting and “took to it like a fish out of water.” He has won nine blue ribbons at the Mississippi State Fair. In addition to his own work, Alan like to participate via the Internet with a larger community of people all over the world who are striving to preserve the art of tatting.
