SUMMARY- This is a very tiny book with very basic information - in a hardcover binding. It is a rarity for the time period it came out in, as tatting's popularity had waned and lain fallow for several decades. Tatting didn't really make a strong comeback until the early 1980's, when we all seemed to realize we needed to use it or lose it.
