Great news, Tatter! Jeani Crichlow-Weick, Angeline Crichlow's daughter is again making her mother's tatting publications available to tatters everywhere. You may remember Angeline from a previous article here on BellaOnline.com: Building a Tatting Library - Angeline Crichlow,
Angeline Crichlow was an inspirational tatter. To celebrate the 1976 USA Bicentennial, she published a hardback book on tatting, "Let's Tat!" Several books followed in the next few years. Angeline and her husband actually printed and bound their books themselves. The paperback booklets are bound with silk ribbon. All her books have been difficult to find in the past, now especially the one hardback book, but worth the search.
