SUMMARY- This book has been translated to English, though notation is in German still. She does not diagram. She does give the English translation for her notation, so with just a little study, it shouldn't be difficult to read. Ms. Siepmann loves organic forms and color, and has developed an impressive style of work that she teaches to anyone who wishes to learn. These are the first two lessons in her series of four books dedicated to teaching her more organic approach to tatting. They are designed as workbooks, to take you through the steps necessary to reproduce the look of flowering branches and plants.
