With the growing interest in lace, New Tatting is a fantastic book for getting started in the craft. Tatting is a means of creating lace by looping threads together using tiny shuttles and your fingers (with occasional help from a crochet hook). It creates dainty chains and edgings as well as single motifs and is used to edge and decorate textiles and clothing, as jewellery, or as large-scale lace projects in itself. Tatting is getting new respect in the crafting world as people discover its traditional beauty while giving it more modern inflection.
In New Tatting you will explore the modern colour and a fresh approach to tatting with incredible step-by-step photos and beautiful projects. This book appeals to people who have never tatted before as well as tatters looking for something new and inspirational. Anyone interested in making lace will find that New Tatting offers everything needed to get started.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is simply gorgeous and all of the projects have a really fun and modern flair. With knowledge passed down from her mother (famous Japanese tatter Teiko Fujito, ) Morimoto has taken the traditional craft in new and exciting directions." --Hugs Are Fun

"I found the author's directions to be clear and easy to follow. There are also plenty of photos and illustrations that do a great job explaining things that words cannot, like how hold the shuttle and thread, for example. With that said, I feel that this is an excellent reference for a beginner tatter. The beginning chapters are very important and focus on the tools you will need, tatting basics, tips and tricks, and how to read tatting instructions." --Crafter's Corner
