Have you ever paged through a tatting book and found a pattern you had never noticed before, or had forgotten about? That happened to me. When my eyes first fell on the page, I was reminded of Mark Myer's style, but when I looked closer, I realized it was a little known pattern by Monica Hahn, called Victoria. It was very interesting to make, but there were rather a lot of ends to work in, so it languished on the UFO pile for a while.
Then I was reminded and finished it up when I got an email from Georgia this week. She said, "Hello Tatters,
This is an advertisement from our sponsor.
There is a possibility that Book 5 of the Ribbonwinners Series "Tatting with Friends" may be back in print next May. I am going to start a waiting list. If interested please email. Thanks."
This is the very book I had used. I had considered myself very lucky to have acquired a used copy since it had been unavailable for a long time. This is a huge anthology style book edited and published by Georgia in 1998. The contents page reads like a Who's Who of tatting: Doretha Albee, Judi Banashek, Karen Bovard, Angeline Crichlow, Patti Duff, Ben Fikkert, Randy & Gary Houtz, Norma Benporath, Pam Palmer, Rosemarie Peel, Helma Siepmann, Suzann Welker. And that's just a sampling.
If you are interested, email Georgia for more information at, aktatter(at)aol(dot)com (fill in the @ and . symbols)
