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.
