Nina Tatlock grew up in Amo, Indiana, where she started working with fibers and sewing at an early age.  She was taught to crochet by her Grandmother Stephenson and Crocheted many “granny square” vests in the mid 1970’s.  “I have many memories of watching my Mother sew as a young child, and was always fascinated by the prospect of seeing the new outfits she would produce for me, my 2 sisters and sometimes my brother.  I received a sewing machine for Christmas at the age of 14 and have been sewing things ever since.  My first job out of High School was working in a “Mom & Pop” fabric store, which was in a converted church.  The combination of the stained glass windows and the bolts of fabric were wonderful.”

Nina pursued her love of fiber arts at Purdue University, receiving a BS in clothing & textiles.  She produced wearable art for several years and currently works with fiber wall hangings & collages.  Nina has taught numerous classes and workshops in and around Indianapolis, Indiana, her hometown for many years.  In the summer of 2006, she and her family moved to Florida for warmer winter weather and a more year round element of sunshine.  During the last couple of years she has been heavily involved with the SouthShore Arts Council to promote the Arts in the South Shore Tampa Bay area.  Nina lives in Apollo Beach, Florida with her husband and daughter.
