The long days of summer are just right for exploring the needle arts of long ago. Let's look at the Barbour Brothers influence on tatting. Three Barbour brothers (Thomas, Robert and Samuel)established the mill in the late 1800's for spinning flax threads. By 1898 after mergers, the company became the largest manufacturer of flax thread in the U. S. In order to help market their product, they devised the Prize series. They published a book named Barbour's Prize Needlework Series - A Treatise on Lace-Making, Embroidery and Needle Work, Book #1, which featured cash prizes ranging from $5 to $10. Flax thread from size 40- 120 was used. It is interesting reading. Tatting section. pgs 66 - 74.

This antique pattern was originally created in five rounds with each row being tatted, cut and tied. However, since tatters hate ends, Study the motif with the intention of climbing out from the center to the outer rows without cutting and tying.
