SUMMARY- Ms. Sato is a needle tatter, and provides pictorial lessons for the basics and her small motifs. Instructions are all in Japanese, but diagrams are provided. There's a nice selection of small motifs, a Camellia Collar, and a couple of doilies. She likes using double picots and onion rings. Since she provided a translation of the ToC, I've included it in this review below the cover scan. Over-all a very nice collection of patterns and beautiful photography throughout.
