SUMMARY- This is not a pattern book. This is an index of all the Workbasket patterns published between October 1935 through December 1990. They are broken down by subject matter, and she also includes other instruction books with patterns that Workbasket published besides the magazine issues. This is a great resource if you can find a copy. I've included a complete catalog of all the tatting patterns on this website, but they are only presented chronologically. There are some errors in Ms. Hollenbaugh's index, but over-all, I found it very useful. Everyone who knows me knows what I nut a am over "Workbasket" - I've spent all but the first 16 years of my life trying to put together a complete run of all the issues. As of this writing, I've still got 10 issues to go - and almost all the early transfer sheets that came with the issues. Sadly, the transfer sheets and the issues were very seldom kept together. But I live in hope of completing my collection before I die. There are several on-line sources for "Workbasket" indexes, but Ms. Hollenbaugh's is the only one I'm aware of that made it into print. I'm very happy to have gotten a chance to see a copy of this index!
