SUMMARY- I love the Palmetto Tatters Guild mission statement: "Our mission is to promote the craft of tatting and spread it like kudzu across the South!" Ambition AND a sense of humor. I was so glad to find this wonderful book. While I'm more of a dragonfly than butterfly kind of gal, there is something so cheerful and happy about butterflies that they are hard to resist - and this book is stuffed with them. The instructions are well broken down and there are great photos of the finished projects right there with them. They also give you a template for making cardboard shuttles so that you can have them on hand for anyone wishing to try it out - Genius. I highly recommend this book.
