New Room

We have moved to a new classroom! After spending time in Room 5 we decided we like it better than our longtime Room 2. Room 5 has better lighting and more counter space. It really has made it easier to see what we are doing with tiny little knots!!!

Saturday Meeting

We have started an extra meeting on the 3rd Saturday of every month.  The Senior Center is open 10AM - 1PM. We are in Room 5. Come Join Us!

Age Exemption

Tatting is considered to be a "lost art" and classes cannot be commonly found elsewhere. Because of that the Senior Center has agreed to let people under the age of 50 participate as long as they buy a Senior Center membership.

As of Oct 5 we are back on the official schedule for meeting IN PERSON at the Richardson Senior Center. We are scheduled to be in our usual room (Room 2) from 3:30 – 8PM. 

 A few things to keep in mind:


    They are checking everyone for Senior Center memberships at the front desk. You can purchase your membership there. Prices vary based on your age and if you are a Richardson resident. I’m attaching the rates below. 

  Richardson Residents with a previously purchased lifetime Senior Center membership will not be required to pay any more fees.

UPDATED TO ADD: A lot of Non-Residents purchased/renewed our Senior Center membership to prepare to move to the Huffines facility while the Senior Center was going to be closed for construction. Because COVID happened immediately after that, we never got to use our membership. The Senior Center is honoring what is left on that membership and no fees will be due until January. Yea! 

(This only applies to Senior Center memberships not Recreation Center senior memberships which are meant for use at Huffines/Heights)

-         AGES

   The Senior Center lowered their membership entry age to 50 – and they are sticking to that. If a tatter was a member or attended before the center closed, they are still welcome and grandfathered in.


  They converted the bathroom closest to us to be a women's restroom. (Yea!) So, don't go over to the restroom we used to use. You will run into Men, lol! 


    It’s been a long while since we have all been together and I can’t wait! Let’s all remember our voluntary courtesy decision to avoid discussions about hot-button topics like politics or religion to avoid interpersonal conflict.
