Group Description

Greetings fellow tatters!
This group was formed by several people who love to tat!
If you do not know what tatting is, do not fret! You are still welcome here if you are willing to learn!
Tatting is a form of lacemaking dating back centuries.
It is the truest and most beautiful type of lace rather than just thread crochet.

First of all let me introduce myself! I am the "Mad Tatter" and owner of this forum (AKA Lorie or "Tats")
I took an interest in tatting almost 17 years ago when my daughter was born. I bought myself a shuttle and book and drove myself nearly crazy trying to learn only to throw it down in frustration for the next 15 years. I then came across a set of "tatting needles" and within a short time I was TATTING! I instantly took to this lost but beautiful art and started making all sorts of fun and functional things! Later after seeing others making "awareness ribbons" from other mediums began a quest for a pattern. After trying a few from cyberspace, I developed my own pattern and have been crazy mad making breast cancer awareness ribbons and selling them to donate the proceeds to the local cancer centers.
Recently I began developing patterns after purchasing a pattern book in which I discovered numerous errors. After contacting the publishing company and submitting proper corrections, I was rudely passed off and sent an "updated" pattern which was far worse and unworkable than the first one! Insulted and frustrated, I took that creators pattern, corrected it, revised it and reworked it and developed my OWN pattern from it. It received rave reviews from other local lacemakers! Being disabled and relatively isolated I decided to create this group so that all may share in swapping patterns, and ideas with other tatters!
If you have any ideas or suggestions for this group (since its my first) please feel free to contact me!
Whew! With all that said; I welcome you to this group!
Happy Tatting!
Warm Regards,
Tats (Lorie)
