Any Tatters here?
I have just found the wonderful craft of Tatting and I was wondering if there are any knitters on this site that Tat?

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.

Tatting needles look like a very long sewing needle .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C797Q8xcviE

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 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 .
