Tatting is simple and portable, and this concealed spiral bound book can be laid flat for ease of use. It includes lots of useful tips throughout and a Tools and Techniques section. It features instruction to make 65 patterns or motifs and 60 designs. This is a great book from a U.K. author. Tatting is basically a handmade lace, with each stitch composed of two half-hitch knots. The appeal of the craft is that it is simple and portable, you can take your tatting equipment anywhere, and now that "Tatting Collage" is republished as a concealed spiral bound book it will be easy to use 'on-the-go'. As well as offering great fun and flexibility, it also avoids the need to handle large and complicated pieces of tatting - a bonus if you are pressed for time or are new to the craft and looking for encouragement.
Lindsay Rogers had been embroidering and tatting as a hobby since childhood until she joined the worldwide Ring of Tatters in 1987. Increasingly sought out by individuals and commercial concerns for help with design and technique, Lindsay was invited to teach in Japan where some of her work has been exhibited. She has lived in Invergarry in the Highlands of Scotland since the 1960s.
