SUMMARY- G.E.S. publishes a wide range of craft magazines and specials, much like Better Homes and Gardens did in the 90's. Several of the Specials featured the designer Edda Guastalla, and this is one of them. I'll add the others to the bibliography as I find them. She wrote an introduction to this issue and tells us she was 48 when this issue was published, has a website(see links below) and has been part of the international tatting community for 30 years. This issue is all tatted jewelry as advertised. You get diagrams with most of the pieces, and written instructions to support the diagrams - all in Italian.

The publisher has a website: And Edda Guastalla has two websites:
