This review is from: The Complete Book of Tatting (Paperback)
Having struggled to understand the tatting technique shown in other books, this one gave me several alternatives, until I found one that suited my style. I have been inspired to work through the various practice techniques and the book shows interesting and up-to-date uses for tatted pieces, such as personalised notepaper, christmas decorations and christmas/gift cards. Rebecca Jones is an enthusiast who is eager to get people started in the craft and, through this book, encourages you to adapt finished pieces into a current style, rather than focusing on the doilies and edgings that may have been popular 20 years ago. It is a must buy for anyone who is new to, or revisiting the craft, or who wants some modern inspiration.
