MEDIA REVIEWS

The DVD included is an excellent way to see close up views, and to listen to detailed explanations of the various stages of tatting. I found the ability to repeat view and alter the speed of display particularly helpful. Many stitches (as in off-loom beadwork) have unqiue thread-paths that can be misunderstood if working just from diagrams or still photographs; I was also able to observe how threads and the shuttle were manipulated for different stitches.

The book is organised in classes which build in complexity from Class 1 (loading and operating the shuttle, double stitch) to Class 6 (stitching with double shuttles) and finishing up with 3 advanced classes (one each on split ring, split chain and front side tatting) and projects. There are nine of these, one per class.

The DVD is organised slightly differently with each class being followed by the related project. Some of the projects would lend themselves very well to jewellery (with or without beads) - particularly the butterflies, hearts and some edgings.

I found this book and DVD to be very helpful, inexpensive and a useful reference source.
