SUMMARY- She may be a brilliant scholar of many fiber arts - I wouldn't be able to tell you. I just know I was underwhelmed with her chapter on tatting. I admit my expectations were somewhat elevated by the fact that I had to wait for quite a while for an affordable copy to cross my path. I have a withdrawn library copy that's still in good shape. I'd see if it is available from my local library before I sprang for a personal copy. Your mileage, of course, may vary.
