SUMMARY- She used black-and-white photography rather than color in this one, and her photos are cropped so tightly I feel I'm missing some of the action. I was really hopeful when I ordered this booklet - there aren't many instruction books floating around geared to teaching Southpaws. You get the same great beginner's patterns in this booklet as you get in her needle tatting instruction book. Shuttle tatting is such a difficult thing to teach with a book. I really wanted more illustrations and photos with this one - and in color so you can see where the thread is.
