Whilst bobbin and lace making techniques produce examples of beautiful and intricate work, it takes many hours to make a finished piece. Lace tatting, however, given the relative speed of forming the stitches, gives much quicker results.;The author is an expert in both tatting and lace and the designs in this book are mainly her own, with the inclusion of one or two Victorian patterns. With the aid of diagrams, she explains basic working methods and follows this with a section on advanced techniques and some lesser-known types of tatting. The collection of 42 patterns, with diagrams and photographs, which makes up the rest of the book, includes a number of pieces for beginners.;The author is a freelance craft tutor, writer and designer, and is a member of the Lace Guild and the Ring of Tatters.
