Needle Tatting

This is not the way your grandmother tatted -- it is MUCH EASIER! You can learn how to needle tat and be comfortable with reading the patterns, yes even grandma's shuttle patterns can be used and the outcome is just the same. A great way to make beautiful trims for crazy quilt blocks or edge a candle mat.
