5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Tatting 13 May 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, especially if you need something easy to put on the front of handmade greetings cards. A Polish friend lent me her copy and as I couldnt understand the written instructions decided it was worth buying my own copy in English! Easy to follow instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, a sheer joy. 17 Aug 2005
By Atheen M. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a visual delight. It's also a ray of hope.

I've often thought that many of the needle arts, particularly the lace making types, have gone out of fashion simply because we have so little use for them any more. Furthermore, not many people appreciate the sophistication of technique and time that is required to produce them. Ms Morton's book definitely shows that notion to the door.She also shows where the needle arts are really headed these days. When you read a book like hers, you see that it isn't the art itself that's "tired" or "useless" but the way we use them.

If you're looking for an imaginative way to use tatted motifs, I'd check out Tatting Patterns by Lyn Morton. The book illustrates designs that even the beginning tatter can do, including simple daisy chains and designs for snowflakes. The author also uses a wonderful palate of colors that liven up her patterns and show that tatting needn't be grandma's ecru table cloth or white doilies. Here too are a variety of suggestions for cards, jewelry, wall and window hangings. For those of you interested in beading, she also includes designs with beading included in the motif.

Truly a joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Pattern Reference 15 Oct 2009
By Megan Ellinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Finally--a beautifully photographed modern book on tatting! Unlike many older books on the subject, there are no 40's style lace collars or unusable projects but rather a variety of small motifs with clear instructions. The book also includes pictures of many of the patterns joined together to make larger items (tablecloths, centerpieces, etc).

This is certainly not a "learn to tat" book but this, combined with a simple instruction booklet (I recommend Learn to Tat (with interactive DVD) since it comes with a well-produced DVD), will have you tatting modern-looking pieces in no time!

5.0 out of 5 stars MORE CHALLENGE AND NEW DESIGNS!!! =D 14 Sep 2008
By Kirbey Zorda - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely adore this book! It has a LOT of new designs and complex patterns for the modern advanced tatter! To judge a book by it's cover is not always good, but this has SURPASSED! It was in excellent condition, and it shows ideas that I never even thought about. These ideas include earings, greeting cards, corsagues, wedding pillow linings, and nechlaces with beads! Beautiful works. I cannot wait to explore and create!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice photos and patterns, but not for beginners 27 Mar 2011
By NaniBly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book of many tatting patterns and most can be done with either shuttle or needle tatting. It has the patterns written out on the typical abbreviated form so you can follow and nice closeup photos to boot but it does not provide any kind of additional instructions with the patterns. For example, the photos may show the item in two colors but the instructions don't acknowledge that option so you have to know when and how to change colors. It also does not provide information on whether you need one or two shuttles, or the approximate amount of thread needed, so beginners might have to figure things out (but stretching ourselves only makes us better, right?)

It is very nice that on some patterns there is a picture with the number of double stitches indicated which is great for quick reference while tatting.The author provides a nice variety of small and large projects, easy and complex ones as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good tatting book 18 Sep 2011
By D. J. Hollander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good tatting book for both beginners and those who have tatted for a number
of years. I have tatted for over 30 years and I found some interesting patterns and
a few ideas I needed a review on, so that was great. I have many tatting books, and this
will probably be in my top 10 due to the wide variety of patterns. I design also, so
this gave me some ideas of jumping off places for my own patterns.
