An Illustrated Dictionary of Tatting

An Illustrated Dictionary of Tatting

by Judith Connors

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Over the last 200 years, tatting, a type of knotted lace made by manipulating a small shuttle to create delicate rings and chains, has evolved to such an extent that it is sometimes difficult to understand instructions in older tatting pattern books without the aid of a dictionary. To my knowledge, this is the first illustrated dictionary of tatting ever published. Australian teacher Connors (Beads in Tatting; The Illustrated Dictionary of Tatting) includes both modern and historical terminology, as well as brief biographical information on well-known figures in the craft. This work should be on the shelf of any library that collects tatting books. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
