The marvelously talented tatting designer from the Netherlands, Ineke Kuiperij, has published a new book. Our friend, Riet Surtel-Smeulders, who is also teaching at Palmettos Tat Days 2017 will be bringing a supply with her. You may purchase the book there or pre-order and have it mailed after the event direct to you.

Riet reported that despite Ineke's determination not to tat flowers, she succumbed to the lure of beauty and challenge and produced a complete book of flowers which showcase a special way of tatting flowers using metal thread.
