Meet the Author

Lindsay Rogers had been embroidering and tatting as a hobby since childhood. But, in 1987 she joined the international organisation ‘Ring of Tatters’ and was increasingly sought out by individuals and commercial concerns for help with design and technique. Lindsay’s mastery of the craft and deft skill at conjuring up her own wonderful designs and patterns highlighted her expertise and she was invited to teach in Japan where some of her work has been  exhibited. Apart from her time in Japan, she has lived in Invergarry in the Highlands of Scotland since the 1960s and her designs are inspired by her love of the countryside.
