My ex's grandmother tatted but she went so fast there was no hope of seeing what she did and I last watched more than 30 years ago. I've often thought I'd like to try it. I might have to get a shuttle and give it a try. I'm not sure I have the dexterity for it. Maybe it doesn't take as much dexterity as I think???? I just watched a video and think I'll indulge in the next one. Thanks for bringing this up. Where did you get your shuttle? Did you find it locally or have to order it?

I bought both a shuttle and a tatting needle and I'm not sure if it's because I knit but I found the tatting needle much much easier to do.

I tat using a tatting needle; however, I haven't had time to tat in years (too busy knitting, fishing, kayaking, bowfishing, crocheting, bookmaking, and occasionally eating and sleeping).

I think this site (http://www.sewfancy.com/needleTatting.htm) is where I got my supplies and how-to books. They used to have some nice linen handkerchiefs that had small holes around the edges so you could add your own border. I don't see them on their site now, though.

Is there an area / thread, here for tatters to post on? If not maybe we could ask if they could give a place to post on Needle and Shuttle Tatting ?

I want to learn to tat so I can embellish some summer tops I have and a jean jacket. I also found that you can make some really beauitful necklaces .
