SUMMARY- There's a basic lesson, 2 doilies and 2 edgings for tatting - a total of six pages. I think one of the doilies may be well worth the price of admission, though. The rest is crochet, with big lush photography throughout. It's interesting to see crochet patterns diagrammed that aren't filet. I have no idea how successful that would be vs tatting or filet. With tatting, you really only have one basic knot. With filet, the stitch is either open or closed. You get a lot of really lovely crochet bedspread designs, then centerpieces. If I were a crocheter, I'd buy it for the crochet. As a tatter, if you weren't as struck as I was with the larger of the two doilies, I'd give this one a miss. Your mileage, of course, may vary. I do wish I knew who the designers were!
