SUMMARY- There wasn't a copyright date on this booklet, but one of the Barbours' ads touted they had been in business from 1784 to 1914. The designer uses written notation and incorporates a lot of circular motifs into her designs. It has a fair amount of attractive traditional tatting projects. This booklet is a rare antique - I've only ever seen this copy, and it's a copy of the original. I wanted to thank Anitra Stone for allowing me to borrow it to document for posterity!

I now have an original copy for the Bibliography Project!
