SUMMARY- Here's another one of those "Must Have" books for your tatting shelf. It's the first book I go to now when I run across a term I don't know. I've already added a few things to the margins of mine in the appropriate places so I can find them again. I also carry it with me in my tatting tote as a companion to whatever book I'm working out of at the moment. Ms. Connors is meticulous and precise with her definitions and her illustrations. This book is indispensable for anyone - beginner or expert - who wants to tat old patterns or learn how to read the new ones. I highly recommend it!
