Feb. 25, 2013
It is time for the BIG EVENT! Nina Libin will show the main features of ANKARS tatting. This method of tatting has a very strong (tight and stiff) foundation and is decorated with beads after tatting is done. Please note that ANKARS and BEANILE are different, but they have a lot in common: both are tatting and both use beads and seed beads. Sometimes there are pre-strung seed beads in ANKARS, and occasional larger beads are used in some BEANILE projects, especially in needle tatted pieces.
The lesson will be presented step by step slowly. You will want to have a shuttle wound and ready to try out the exercise. We are all learning this together. Please take time to read the information and you might want to print it off and begin an ANKARS folder. Having all these lessons at hand will be a great aid where you being to work patterns posted online and in the Russian language books.

Where to start the pattern?
I arrange the pattern or the diagram in what seems to be the most efficient place to start and the direction that is the easiest to work. And go from there. You do not have to start where the directions say.
