Tatting with Marilyn

One of our members in an enthusiastic tatter! She has won many awards for her work. Marilyn has been invited to take part in an international swap with a Canadian Tatting Group, which she is enthusiastic about, and has already received a gift from an American tatter and has sent of her swap to a destination far away!

Here are some examples of Marilyn's fantastic work:

This small hat was quite a challenge!

A work in progress

And this is the beautiful piece she recently received from her North American swap partner:

For those, like me, who don't know much about tatting, it is a type of lace made with a shuttle. It is also known as shuttle-lace or shuttle-work.  It is distantly related to the crafts of netting and macrame. (Definition  from 'Golden Hands', Vol 1, page 254)
