I taught myself back in 1997, I used a bunch of different books (this was before I discovered the internet). My parents went away for 2 weeks and left me at home with the animals, and for all of that time I had nothing to do but tie knots in bits of thread till it "clicked"! I think the book that helped me the most was one by Rebecca Jones - can't remember the title right now, and I don't even know if it's still in print.

I don't do enough tatting, I really should do more instead of lamenting the fact that I can't crochet to save myself.

I prefer the clover shuttles with the pick - the ones with removable bobbin (put out by Birch and Aero), I find the bobbin gets loose after a while, and the metal hook sometimes comes loose too.

Like most on here, I have inherited a ton of craft stuff from my grandma. Included in all that was her tatting shuttles. I got them a month or so ago and I keep telling myself I really want to learn how to tat. (This is after I taught myself to knit and sew in the last couple months.) I want to learn to crochet, which some of the other stuff I got.

After looking at the stuff you can make with tatting, I am now Really inspired to learn. Thanks for all the great links.

Hey everyone!  I hope that all of you are still tatting Smiley  I just started a couple of days ago, and I was wondering if you guys could look at it and see what I can do better.  Smiley

hello, everyone! somehow I missed this thread...

anyway, as my username shows, I tat Smiley

almost exclusively with the needle, and I love to do it. I haven't made too many large projects, although I have a tablecloth on hold until I can get just the right threads.

If you review the threads I've posted here, they mostly have to do with tatting, as it's my current preferred craft.

You can see some of my eye candy and free patterns I've designed on my site at http://tatmom.com.

I cannot claim these little vintage pieces of my own, but I can claim them as work done by my relative!  I didn't want to put these in the completed projects section due to the fact that I didn't work on them, but I am posting these here for you to enjoy/admire, etc. I found these in a couple of very old books that I had.  One is tatted the other looks like it's mini/micro crochet.  Enjoy the vintage!

No problem, it's really nice to share the vintage love... Just wish I had the patience to do this type of work.  I'm sticking with embroidery for now.
