Overview

This clearly written, lavishly illustrated guide to the age-old art of lace-making allows even novices to fill a treasure chest with lovely tatted designs.
Veteran tatting instructor Rozella Linden has included clear, step-by-step instructions that will help you create simple rings and picots for such projects as earrings, a small sunflower, and an ice crystal as well as chains for flower pins, a small rosette, a lacy square, and a snowflake ornament — among other designs. Advanced tatters will find directions for completing elegant projects that include a tatted necklace (which can also be used as edging), an oval doily, a fancy snowflake, and a delicate table mat.
Over 65 drawings and photos enhance this collection of easy-to-do but very attractive patterns that will not only inspire and delight anyone interested in this intriguingly beautiful craft but also enable even beginning tatters to create treasured possessions of exquisite handmade lace.

 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tatting's reputation as a difficult, obscure needlecraft would have you believe that to tat you need some sort of manual dexterity not afforded ordinary mortals. This book teaches the basic tatting stitch in a simple half-page of illustrated instructions. From there the reader moves on to increasingly challenging projects, including tatted earrings, a tatted beaded necklace, suncatchers, snowflake ornaments, a doily, and a tatted table mat. All projects include both written and diagrammed instructions as well as clear black-and-white photographs. It is a pleasure to recommend this excellent tatting instruction book at such a reasonable price. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

I've been wanting to learn how to tatt for a while, and when I saw this book I thought YES!!!! I can finally learn!! But really, should I pay for this book? Is it worht my money? And also, if you're writing a review, please stay on the topic of the book.
