PUBLISHER, but are scanned from my private collection.

SUMMARY: I ran across a sample issue of this newsletter at a local lace teaching event. It's hard to judge a run of a title by just one issue. I've discovered that most professional lace organizations I've encountered give only grudging acknowledgment to the art of tatting - have never really gotten a satisfactory answer as to why. Tatting is lace! It's one of the few laces that can't be machine duplicated! It HAS to be done by hand!!! So please forgive my amusement with this issue. They had a Mary Konior pattern in this issue - for crochet! If you don't know who Mary Konior is, ask any tatter. Her tatting books are highly sought after, and very expensive because of their relative rarity. Yes, she published a few crochet pattern books as well - but she is best known for her beautiful tatting.

This issue may well be the exception that proves the rule, and there are regular tatting articles sprinkled in with all the rest, but this is the issue I have to judge by. Is there anyone better informed who'd like to weigh in? Please, contact me!
