Tatting is not a lost art, I found it

I wish that I had a wonderful story about how I learned tatting at the knee of my grandmother, or discovered a lost family relic and chose to learn this lost art to resurrect it from the darkness. The truth is much more mundane. I was bored with knitting, crochet and sewing. I wanted to find something new to do with my hands and I found tatting. I didn't know what it was, but I knew I had to learn how to do it. With the help of a single book and the internet, I taught myself. Then I got immediately bored with doilies, bookmarks and edgings and put it away. It wasn't until a bookmark I had made was mistaken for a bracelet that the stars aligned and I started designing.

Tatting is my meditation, my artistic outlet and the thing that keeps my hands busy much of the day. This shop is not only my job, but my excuse to keep creating and stretching my skills, to expose tatting to every corner that I can. Tatting is not a lost art. I found it and now so have you.

    I tie knots in thread with the help of a needle. I do this everyday whether I need to or not.
