I am been away teaching tatting workshops in Seattle and Spokane, WA. What a real treat that was. I hope you all take advantage of any tatting workshops in your area. Upon return I learned that some browser were unable to cope with the link to the free google download of the Lady Hoare book. Here is a second site which offers that book for free also. Enjoy.
