Tatting is a Victorian art form of making lace. Think grandma's doilies and collars.
Tatting was once considered to be a lost art, but in recent years has made quite a comeback in popularity.
Tatting uses threads from as thin as hair to as thick as yarns or even ropes.
What makes the lacy rings and chains, is a series of knots, using your hands and a shuttle or needle.
Though I am accomplished in both needle and shuttle tatting, I prefer the shuttle. I find it faster and easier to use.
I am working on a video to show how this is done. Please be patient.
