Newsletters & Guilds


Tatting patterns were first shared by individuals showing one pattern at a time. Often ladies would meet and teach each other a pattern which was saved in homemade sample albums. The cover of the July/August 2010 PIECEWORK magazine recently featured a similar album for crocheted items. During the latter part of the 19th century needle artists such as Mlles. Riego and Dillmont began putting out little booklets of patterns. Newspapers and ladies' magazines carried patterns in the early part of the 20th century. Publications dedicated to the individual needle arts soon followed. Not even two world wars and paper shortages prevented the spread of our treasured ten-cent publications.

For decades tatters clipped and saved patterns, collected booklets and marveled at the occasional hardback books of patterns published. Then, in 1989 the world wide web spread its tentacles around the globe and the network of tatters online was securely fastened to the firmament. The click of the shuttle is rivaled now only by the click of the mouse as tatting techniques, patterns, and tips are shared by one and all. Sharing, caring and tatting are synonyms in today's world. With new websites forming daily, one can learn the basics of tatting in cyberspace and even attend classes to study with the online tatting class. Patterns to print and share; books, supplies, threads, and shuttles all are available online.

Karey Solomon, editor of TATTING TIMES, has posted a free tatted tree with buttons patterns. Check out her publications on the home page. Her petite books are packed full of easy tatting projects. And see the BellaOnline article celebrating her 20th year of publication:

And when you have reached the stage in your tatting experience where you are ready to be certified, please contact Bobbie Demmer with the "Tatters Across Time" project.

A similar proficiency program for tatting (and other laces) is available from the International Org of Lacers, Inc. (IOLI.) It is a journal based self study program which may be submitted for assessment to achieve formal recognition.

The IOLI group also publishes a bulletin four times a year in October, January, April, and July. It contains information on tatters and other lacemakers, lace events and patterns for a variety of techniques.
