Mary Maynard's Rings of Flowers








"Poetry in Thread...
The flower patterns and the notecards featured in "Rings of Flowers" remind me greatly of Haiku, a form of Japanese poetry. The poem suggests the beauty of a moment in time captured in but the fewest of words. Mary Maynard's tatted designs "freeze-frame" moments from a garden using but a few pen strokes for greenery and a few stitches in thread.

This is an exciting first book of tatting patterns created by Mary Maynard of Laramie, Wyoming. A left-handed tatter of many years experience, Mary holds a BS in Textiles and Merchandising. In this book she combined her business acumen and her love of tatting to produce a reference tool for tatters."

Mary Maynard has shared some of her patterns online. Here is a page of designs and instructions for several designs:

Mary Maynard published a second book, "Tatting a 4 Square Ring." The concept behind the book was simple. Tatted lace created by a basic pattern; the 4 Square ring. Mary explained it this way: There are 4 double stitches between picots and joins in both rings and chains. It's an intriguing way to build a tatting pattern.


Editor's Note: This book was acquired for my personal library. The above contained excerpts from the Book Review for Mary Maynard's "Tatting: Ring of Flowers" by Georgia Seitz 10-20-2000.
