Join me as I explore tatting history. I may trace the development of the craft, translate old patterns into modern notation, or play detective tracking down the earliest appearance of a technique, design, or term.

Welcome to my new blog devoted to tatting history. Sometimes I will trace the development of the craft in a chronological manner; other times I may take a side excusion to investigate the earliest sighting of a technique, motif, or term. Viewer participation quite welcome in sleuthing endeavors! Also expect to see here old patterns translated into modern notation and whatever else may strike my fancy.

Happy Tatting to All!

Martha, I'm so glad you're doing this new blog. I've already subscribed and look forward to seeing what you come up with. I find the history of tatting interesting--partly because the early origins are so fiercely contested and that sparks my curiosity. Good luck!

Very excited to discover your blog! I'm working my way through modernizing the Priscilla tatting books and will be very excited to read what you find out about the early publishing of tatting patterns. Looking forward to reading more!
