A beautiful and detailed introduction to tatting!

With the growing interest in lace, New Tatting is a fantastic book for getting started in the craft. Tatting is a means of creating lace by looping threads together using tiny shuttles and your fingers (with occasional help from a crochet hook).

Tatting is getting new respect in the crafting world as people discover its traditional beauty while giving it a more modern inflection.

In New Tatting, you will explore modern color and a fresh approach to tatting with incredible step by-step photos and beautiful projects.

Anyone interested in making lace will find that New Tatting offers everything needed to get started.

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

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.
