SUMMARY- Ms. Seitz is an indefatigable champion and teacher of tatting as well as a collector. The patterns in this book are for novice tatters. The instructions are very well broken down, with diagrams and a clean photo of the finished motif - I don't think you can get better than that. She starts with very traditional patterns and slowly develops technique to more original work when she reaches split ring technique. I like the enthusiasm and care that Ms. Seitz puts into her books, and would recommend them with confidence.

Georgia Seitz runs a fabulous website at .

She is also the tatting editor of a wonderfully informative forum
