  1. What an amazing collection of reference work. Thank you so much for taking the time to pull this together! I only wish I found your board right away I've only been tatting for 3 weeks and have fallen in love with needle tatting. I'm newly disabled and the work is light weight and pulls my mind off my troubles. Thanks again.

    1. Thank you, Carol :-) So glad this can be of help - even if in future . I have needle-tatted for a total of 2 days. But this reminds me that I should include those links as well :-)
      Tatting soon becomes quite a passion, so I hope it is relaxing & rejuvenating for you always.
      Thanks for stopping by & for your kind words.
