SUMMARY- This book gives you an overview and sampling of patterns of a lot of different handicrafts. The tatting section comprises three pages - two with instructions and illustrations for doing basic rings and chains, and a very basic, but pretty, edging to practice on. I wouldn't seek this book out if you are just looking for tatting patterns, but the potpourri of disciplines is fun to browse.
