Editorial Reviews

From 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.

I am a beginner, and this book really helped me to progress to shuttle-and-second thread tatting. Other books are kind of stuffy and hard to understand. The only complaint I might have is that the author doesn't introduce slightly more complicated tatting charts using 2 shuttles, but this book is definitly enough to get you started!

I was able to learn how to tat from the book, and I knew nothing about tatting.

What a wonderful starter book! It is not too complex and not too simple. The instructions are very, very simple to understand. I use these books for my students when teaching my class! What a find!!! They came fast and well packaged. They were brand new and beautiful. They even get into adding beads! Wonderful! I need more! =D

I don't know if this is a good book for beginner's, but I learned to tat from my grandmother a millinium ago, and this is a great refresher to allow me to pick it up.

Lovely patterns. Although I am a beginner in needle tatting, this is a shuttle book, but I was able to interpret the directions OK. I found some typos and some of the directions leave out steps, it seems to me, but overall I am pleased with the purchase. Photos are black and white but clear enough for a beginner. The CAD-drawn illustrations lack detail and I found some errors, but upon combining the photo, the schematic, and the written instructions, and a practice round or two, I got it.

Format: Paperback
I got this book to learn tatting and found it an exercise in frustration. the illustrations are few and, for the most part, unhelpful. the author doesn't go over how to wind a shuttle or explain why the shuttle is shaped the way it is. the part on chaining amounts to "hold the thread like this and do a chain". a friend of mine got a different tatting book with much clearer instructions and i nearly burned this one in frustration. if you want to learn to tat spend a little more money and get a better book.
