What is it?
The allure of tatting is undeniable. To confirm that just sit down in the presence of any large group, pull out your tatting shuttle and start putting rings and picots together. You will immediately have a whole host of new friends all wanting to know exactly what you are doing. What is it, how do you do it, where can I get it or where can I learn how to do it? Tatting itself is a relatively new art form that is currently enjoying a genuine resurgence in popularity. With just a little practice even a novice can produce amazing lace creations and it’s surprisingly simple. Whether following a published pattern or leaning to your own creative schemes, tatting is comprised of making and arranging patterns of rings and chains and picots. But those simple rings, chains and picots produce beautiful objects that have applications to every needle art genre imaginable. So what’s not to like? Here’s what’s not to like. All the housekeeping. Traditional tatting shuttles require that you wind thread on to them before you can actually start tatting. If you want two or more colors you’ll need two or more shuttles. Or what if you’re doing a very large project requiring a lot of thread? More tatting shuttles required or you have to stop often to rewind the one in use. And where do you keep all of your thread supplies while you’re working? Like I said, a lot of housekeeping. Is there an alternative? They always have the solutions to enhance your creative instincts.
