Hello Tatters!
I hope you are enjoying your summer and getting lots of tatting done. I have been working on finding patterns from a donation of vintage Needlecraft magazines. These magazines are from the early 1900's. Lots of goodies from names known to us such as Mrs. C. B. Paltt and Anna Hoskins and new names such as Nancy Cary and Nellie May. Another name new to me is Hazel Stoner Mercier.

Hazel presented a tatted alphabet starting in the Needlecraft April 1937 issue, A, B, C, D, and E. The May issue has F, G, and H. Sept. published I, J, K, and L.
But the letters M through Z are missing. The Sept. issue only gave a remark that more letters would be published in future issues.

If you collect the Needlecraft Magazines, please look around and see we you can locate the missing letters of the alphabet. Any help most welcome.

Here's the latest article from the Tatting site at BellaOnline.com.
