That's a great tutorial! Thanks for doing those. I've been looking for a good way to learn tatting, and all the other resources I've found have been fantastically confusing. With the help of your videos I may just build up the confidence to try it.

Keep up the great work!

Great job!

Tatting is such a beautiful craft! Thank you for such lovely instructional videos!

I love the bookmark you made for your husband! The colors are gorgeous!

(I also peeked at your other You Tube videos.... The one with the kitten drinking from the bottle is so cute! I remember when my cat was that small - we found him when he was only 5 weeks old - and we had to bottle feed him! He's now 3 yrs old and big 20 lbs! )

That bookmark is stunning, Nobones!

And I thought your video was quite clear - even without seeing all of lesson 1, I could get a grip on what you were doing. I might even try it ... that is once I work through some of this yarn.

I'd heard of Tatting but never really got round to finding out what it was until now.

Those videos are absolutely brilliant - they made it so easy to follow. Could you tell me, please, Where I'd be able to buy the shuttles?

All the Best

Wow...
I never heard of tatting before (in swedish it's called "frivolitet") but it looks so wonderful!
I'm rather interested in most crafts but I never got around to learning how to make lace since the only way I knew to make it was with one of those big pillows and lots of bobbins , and quite frankly I neither have money nor space for that... but tatting actually looks doable, especially with the help of your videos!!

I'm sure I've seen shuttles in my 'l'ys in Ormskirk. So maybe try yours? Hobbycraft might sell them too.

I'm thrilled you like my video. Tatting IS easy once you get the hang of it.

You can get shuttles in Hobby craft, they are a bit pricey though.

Limey I've pm you so see what you think!

It seems tatting has died out in Sweden... I went out trying to find a shuttle, then I googled it trying to find a store that sold them, seems tatting isn't all that popular here. Well, I amn't one for giving up so I made a shuttle in cardboard. Yeah it sounds horrid, and it does look rather ugly and I'm sure a real one is better... but it did work! I mananged to do a ring with it! So now I've made one in cardboard that's a bit sturdier and have bought some crocheting yarn and will try this out more thoroughly...
