SUMMARY- Written instructions vary widely but all the patterns have diagrams and a photo. You get a huge variety of great designs from a lot of names you'll recognize, and a lot of great tips and techniques to try. This is a wonderful gem and one I recommend highly. Unfortunately, it's out of print. Grab it if you happen to run across it. You won't be sorry. The patterns and techniques were compiled from their newsletter. Subscriptions are still available.

The Ring of Tatters is a well established guild in England. They have a website: www.ringoftatters.org.uk
