Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book is simply gorgeous and all of the projects have a really fun and modern flair. With knowledge passed down from her mother (famous Japanese tatter Teiko Fujito,) Morimoto has taken the traditional craft in new and exciting directions." --Hugs Are Fun

"I found the author's directions to be clear and easy to follow. There are also plenty of photos and illustrations that do a great job explaining things that words cannot, like how hold the shuttle and thread, for example. With that said, I feel that this is an excellent reference for a beginner tatter. The beginning chapters are very important and focus on the tools you will need, tatting basics, tips and tricks, and how to read tatting instructions." --Crafter's Corner

    Recommended for beginners

    The book is an English translation of a Japanese Tatting book, Tatting Lace, ISBN: 9784140311820. The pages have been re-ordered with a different cover page so I didn't realize it was a translation. It was only when I saw a pattern in the English version that is on the cover of the Japanese version did I realize I had two versions of the same book. I do not speak or read Japanese so I cannot determine how accurate the translation is. I would recommend the English version as a good basic how-to book for someone wanting to learn to tat.
