[personal profile] delladea posting in [community profile] tatting
Hi there! I found this community doing an interest search for sewing. I inherited a tatting shuttle and loads of thread from my grandmother, but I haven't a clue how to use it. I do sew a lot and would love to make my own lace for projects.

Does anyone have any recommendation for a good beginner tutorial on tatting? Thanks!

here are a bunch of links I've been collecting. I'm a newbie too :)

this one has some pretty good directions too. I'm still having a little bit of trouble getting my hands coordinated enough to make anything that even resembles lace, but it's fun!

I actually did manage to find a reasonably priced class in my area--you might look around to see if there's one in yours by checking craft shops. My class was so small it ended up being a one-on-one tutorial, too, so that was pretty sweet--and a lot easier to ask questions from a person.

Errr, sorry I'm getting to this so late. Did you ever find a good tutorial? Do you still need/want help learning to tat?

There are lots of great videos on YouTube if you're the visual sort of learner! The links that [personal profile] synapse has gathered are very good ones, too. I have to admit that I didn't do so well with the drawn pictures, but needed to watch somebody tatting to learn (yay, videos!)
