About Kaye

Kaye Judt first learned to embroider at the age of 7 and hasn't put down the needle since.  She credits her love of fine needlework to the inspiration and enthusiasm she has obtained through membership in the Embroiderers’ Guild of America (EGA) and other guilds both local and national. 


She has taught embroidery at the national Assembly for Embroiderers for the National Academy of Needlearts (NAN) and the national Celebration for the Quilters' Hall of Fame.  She has taught at the Stan Hywett Guild in Akron, OH; the Great Lakes EGA Regional Seminar in Indianapolis and for other EGA Guilds in the Great Lakes Region. 


Inspired by stationary with tatted motifs, Kaye learned to shuttle tat in the early 1990’s and needle tatting came shortly after.  Kaye has authored three books on tatting: Oh My Stars!, Motifs for Marie, and A Little o’ This A Little O’ Tat.  She is an international tatting teacher.


Kaye is a Trained Sewing Instructor with the Sewing and Crafts Alliance and has Teaching Certification with the National Academy of Needlearts.
