TATTING BOOK/MAGAZINE BIBLIOGRAPHY

(last updated: JUNE 2021)

OVER 1,400 REVIEWS!

Who knew there were over 1,000 books published about tatting. If someone had told me this just a few years ago, I would have laughed and told them to pull the other one. But it's true!!! There are more than a 1,000 books world-wide that at least had a chapter dedicated to the art of tatting, or included tatting patterns in its needleart offerings. Magazine titles each count as one(1) in the count, so in spite there being about a 1,000 patterns over the course of "Workbasket"'s run, I only count "Workbasket" once. But I also include any Coats & Clark booklet that included tatting patterns, even if it was primarily a crochet book. Subtract all of those, and we are still over 1,000. I find that mind-blowing. And of course there are more and more new books being published every year. I do my best to keep up, but my husband and I really love to eat. Sad, but true. I know, if I were really dedicated, I'd give up that silly habit.

My tatting bibliography started with what I had on my shelves, with entries for things that I was aware of(there's still a lot of stuff floating around I don't know about). THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE - but we're getting close! The vast majority of tatting books are self-published with small print runs of as little as a 100 or less. That means they were instantly rare upon publication. I am constantly running across small gems that I had no previous inkling existed. I've only in the last few years connected with the general community where these gems got disseminated - and there are so many talented designers scattered across many different countries(most of which aren't English speaking). My bibliography's main claim to fame(hee) are the magazine reviews - NO ONE has a database as large as I do of women's craft magazines. They may have larger collections(I have no idea), but no one has been dumb or crazy enough to sit down and catalog all the table of contents of all the issues along with a scan of the cover for reference - then turned it into HTML for the public to use as reference. I've made a habit of doing at least a couple of issues a day, so I'm not fast. But even slow as I am, the pile of cataloged stuff is becoming pretty impressive. I often pat myself on the back for this until a gaze upon all the boxes I haven't gotten to yet...

It will always be a Work-in-Progress. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of Becky Clark, Carolyn Kotlas, Georgia Seitz, Anitra Stone, and the IOLI lending library, the tatting bibliography page has gone from a measly 600 reviews to over 1,000 over the course of 2015/16. Who knew there were that many tatting publications loose in the world!

I expand the bibliography as I have time to hunt down information on other titles. Want to be my friend for life? Send me information on titles I don't have all the details for. Any information I don't have to hunt for is time I can spend getting more information entered into the bibliography! Books are organized by author/designer, NOT by title, then by copyright date for each designer(so that you can track the history of that designer's published work). If a book or magazine entry has a Book Review Popup Window button, it means I own it or at least have access to it and have put up a page for it with the usual scan of the cover, table of contents, and brief review. I don't typically put up reviews of books I don't have access to, because then I can't answer questions about them. It's a quick way to tell whether I can answer further questions on a given book.

The most important part of the bibliography is the magazine section - there is no other accessible database of this nature out there! Magazine reviews are collected at the bottom of this page in alphabetical order by title, with catalogs of the issues I have below the review. I still have several runs of magazines to add to this section, but they can take many months to do one title. "Workbasket" and "Old Time Crochet" have the most tatting patterns of all the magazines I own.

I'm a less able tatter than I am a soft toy designer/maker, so keep this in mind when reading my reviews - Always take them with a healthy dose of skepticism. What bugs me may be no concern at all to you. What I wax enthusiastic about you may look at and think "Meh". I consider myself a very well practiced beginner! I will try and relate what the instructions look like(whether there are good diagrams or photos of the projects,instructions are readable, etc.), if I've tatted patterns out of the book, whether there are lessons or if it's straight patterns - you get the drift. The Table of Contents(ToC) are provided with each review so you can see what sorts of patterns are in that book. I have over 1,300 reviews up on this page now! I will continue to add more as I have time and acquire new books and magazines.



Any designers who wish links put up to their websites may feel free to send me the links and I'll add them to the bibliography to help fellow tatters. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

WHY I AM A CRITIC



IMPORTANT REMINDER

This is a free biblio information service, NOT a free pattern clipping service. I try to provide enough information so you can decide whether to pursue a legal copy of your own. I don't mind people making their own bibliographies and wishlists from my lists(in fact, I sorta expect them to) - but I greatly mind people helping themselves to any part of my reviews without citing their source!!! I've started finding chunks of my reviews in listings on e-bay with depressing regularity - which would be flattering if they told people who they were quoting. My magazine catalogues seem especially appealing to pirates. Please, if you are going to excerpt my pages, tell people where you got the information. It costs you exactly nothing to do so, and it keeps you inside the lines of copyright law. I do not own the articles and patterns(except the copy I have that allows for private use), but I DO own the catalog of them that took so much time and expense to put together and make accessible to you. Respect my efforts and don't strip the copyright notice. Give the website address when you use information from my website. Read my FAQ if you aren't clear on what you can use for your own purposes. If that doesn't clear up your questions, feel free to contact me and ask. I am quite reasonable and happy to help when I can.

I respect copyright laws, But if it is an impossibly rare or orphaned article that you need access to, read my FAQ. I make specific exceptions.

You'll notice that not all the books listed are tatting books - some are crochet, bobbin lace and knitting. Some designers published books in several disciplines. I've included mention of their other (nontatting) books for the sake of completeness where I could. It can be instructive to know what other disciplines a particular designer pursued.

I review all the Coats & Clark, American Thread Company and several designers(Cordet, Farnes, Fitch, LaCroix, Snow, Valeire) from the late 1910's/1920's whose booklets I've come across as much to warn treasure hunters which ones don't have tatting patterns in them as opposed to the ones that do(they often added a token tatting pattern to many of their crochet books). I've moved all the booklets(even the ones with tatting patterns in them) to their own pages with a link in this list. I thought about splitting them up, but decided to keep it simple. Those people who have no interest in these lines of books won't have to scroll endlessly to get past them, and those who do can easily open the pop-up page to take a look and close it again without disturbing the main bib page. I find the older books fascinating, and hope to have accumulated enough of them at some point I can start putting together some meta-data on the cycle of popularity tatting has gone through over the last two centuries.

I've started creating pages for designers whose published work was either mainly in magazines instead of books(Norma Benporath, Myrtle Hamilton, Selma and Ed Morin) so that I can compile lists of their articles for the interested, or that have published so many books they really needed their own page. I've also started creating pages for specific types of patterns, starting with Pineapple tatting, and Monogram sets.

HAPPY TATTING!

AMERICAN THREAD COMPANY I've moved these booklets to their own page so that you don't have to scroll so much to get past them. Not all of them have tatting patterns in them, and most have a mix of different disciplines(knitting, crochet, tatting).

So if you were ever curious, you can now take a look in one simple click of your mouse. I'd been piecing this list together for over a decade, and Becky filled in all the blanks in just a few days. Hers is definitely the superior Keyboard Fu! In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: AMERICAN THREAD COMPANY

ANNIE'S ATTIC I've moved all the Annies Attic books that weren't published under a single designer's name to their own page. Annie's Attic does publish tatting books, and in the 1990's into the early 2000's, pushed Cro-tatting in order to satisfy their much larger crocheting audience with the look of tatting but using the tool they were more comfortable with.

Die Schiffchenarbeit: 12 Tafeln mit 74 Mustern in Originalgröße, by Anonymous (TPB:1919?) Book Review Popup Window
Notes: 12 pages; Language: German; Publisher: Not Given, Germany; ISBN: None;
      This is a book of twelve(12) photos of 74 patterns that you could work out with a piece of paper and a magnifying glass. It does not include the publisher's or the author's name anywhere in the book, but it came inscribed as a gift with the date 1919 on my copy. I love a good mystery, and the pattern illustrated on the cover had onion rings, which of course immediately made me think Mizi Donner... And now I've found another potential German designer from this time period whom it could easily be - Tina Frauberger.

ARDERN'S CROCHET COTTON came from the Hazel Grove Mills in England. They put out a line of crochet, knitting and tatting leaflets to help promote their threads.

ELEANORE ARNOLD was a turn of the century designer for the Glasgo Lace Thread Co. based in Glasgo, Connecticut. They published a series of books of her designs, which were primarily crochet and some knitting, but by the 4th book also included tatting. These books are rather obscure - I had not encountered them until 2019 - but have managed to find 3 of them so far. They are long out of copyright, so I'll provide pdfs when I can find the time.

BABY STUFF Baby stuff means baby bonnets and booties mainly. I'm sure I'll run across other things, but my goal here is to make a page that you can pull up to help you decide which pattern you wish to pursue to make for that precious baby. My collection is vast and goes back well over a century. It occurred to me (eventually) that others might find my compulsive list making both illuminating and useful. So I'm making several pages like this. You'll see them scattered through the bibliography.

BELDING BROTHERS & CO. SILK MANUFACTURERS I've moved all the Belding Brothers & Co. booklets to their own page. Very few of them have tatting patterns in them, and most have a mix of different disciplines(knitting, crochet, tatting).

NORMA BENPORATH (1900 - 1998) Norma Benporath was hugely influential in the tatting world, having published over 1,000 tatted lace designs in many women's magazines, weeklies, and newspapers, as well as offering a wide variety of beautiful designs through SEMCO, an Australian based thread manufacturer. I am still working on compiling her huge body of work, but at least have a biography up and the catalog sketched out so you can have an idea of the scope of her body of work. Judith Connors has been very generous with her knowledge of Norma, and this page wouldn't have been possible without her help. In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: NORMA BENPORATH

BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS put out a large number of special editions - still using the magazine format ofttimes, but cramming these stand-alone editions with craft projects from a wide spectrum of craft disciplines. They often included a tatting project - from powerhouses like Mary Sue Kuhn, Marion Leyds, and Mary McCarthy. I haven't begun a catalog for BH&G's main magazine run, so I'd been putting the special editions here in the main bib - only this bib is getting ridiculously huge and slow to open.

ANNA WUERFEL BROWN(March 29, 1867 - March 31, 1935) Her books have her initials "AWB" in prominence on the covers. I've moved the listing and reviews of her booklets to their own page so that you don't have to scroll so much to get past them. Several of them have tatting patterns in them, and most have a mix of crochet and tatting. She was one of several prolific designers who published during the 1910's and '20's. In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: ANNA WUERFEL BROWN

You'll notice that I've included on this page a listing and reviews of Cora Kirchmaier's run of filet Crochet and embroidery books. She co-published with Ms. Brown early on, so her books are included on the Brown page.

COATS & CLARK I've moved these booklets to their own page so that you don't have to scroll so much to get past them. Not all of them have tatting patterns in them of course, and most have a mix of different disciplines(knitting, crochet, tatting). I'd been piecing together a comprehensive list of all the booklets they'd published over the decades - and they were the 800 lb. gorilla in the thread industry - for over a decade, and then my friend, the amazing Becky Clark, filled in the rest of the list in just a few days. We have Becky to thank for the links to availabe pdfs of many of the early books as well. If you happen to encounter her, be sure to thank her for all the work she's done gratis for both the Craft Bibliography Project and for CRAFTREE.COM Without her, a staggering amount of information would still be lost and wandering in the electronic ether.

ANGELINE CRICHLOW(1910 - 1997) is an important touchstone in the tatting community. Her legacy cannot be overstated.

She only produced 500 of this book, and it has never been republished. She was a tireless promoter of tatting who inspired other pillars of our community.

MIMI DILLMAN Loves cluny(leaf) tatting, and has put up a great bibliography listing every reference she and her friends could find. I'm including a link to her page here(courtesy of the Wayback machine) for those who have a similar interest and want a ready-made wishlist of patterns to hunt for: http://web.archive.org/web/20161223221245/http://home.netcom.com/~ntrop/mimi/biblio.html

ps- you know about the great tutorial videos on www.youtube.com, right? I don't think I'd have ever figured out cluny leaves without those videos. Learning from a book just got me confused... Okay, that isn't hard to do, but I still maintain it was much easier after watching the videos several times. I've also run across a great tutorial by Muskaan of Craftree fame that I like a lot: http://www.tipsaroundthehome.blogspot.in/2015/07/cluny-tatting-tips.html

MRS. MYRTLE M. HAMILTON(1899-2003) was a designer of lovely tatting patterns and a prolific author of articles for such popular magazines as "Workbasket" and "Stitch'n Sew". We'll never know how many of the unattributed patterns in "Workbasket" were hers. I have taken the time to create a bio page stub for Mrs. Hamilton and the beginning of a bibliography of her published works. This has given me the excuse I needed to go back and reread all of her articles! I'll add more information to the bio page as I collect it this time through. For now, I've listed all the articles(that I'm aware of) as well as a list of places I've looked, and the places I haven't had a chance to look at but seem likely:

I've made a downloadable PDF of this page and included it at the bottom of the review...

MONOGRAMS fascinate me. I keep a special binder of just tatting monograms so I have them collected all in one place and can examine them at will without pulling dozens of books off the shelves. It interests me to see how often a particular monogram gets republished through the decades. There have been some really amazing new ones in the last year or so(It's the end of 2014 as of this writing), and it made me think that maybe others would like to see a list of the monograms I'm aware of:

Selma and Ed Morin were contributors to the much loved periodical "Workbasket." They started their own company, designed their own tatting needle in collaboration with Boye and published in a lot of different magazines along with having their own line of books. I believe they along with Myrtle Hamilton were the backbone of tatting surviving and being revived in the 1980's. I don't have many of the patterns they sold through their mail-order business, but I've set up a page with what I know. Hopefully, someone will see this and fill in more! Here's the page: Selma and Ed Morin

ANNE ORR(1875-1946) I've moved the listing and reviews of her booklets to their own page. She was a prolific and very popular designer in the 1920's - 1940's, and is credited with innovating the split ring, a very important technique that didn't really catch on until Mary Sue Kuhn showed us all why we should have been paying attention. Ms. Orr was an extremely prolific designer - but much of the work published under Anne Orr Studios was by designers who worked for her, and not from her own hands. I think of her as the Edison of the fiber arts world. I'm still a long way from having a full run of her books, but I've managed to put together a fairly comprehensive list.

TATTED PINEAPPLES are especially attractive to me, and are tricky to translate from crochet. They are one of the more rare motifs - though not as rare as I thought at first. The oldest tatted pineapple pattern I have found thus far is the baby bonnet by Mrs. I.M. Wilburn(see photo to the right) first published in "Needlecraft: The Home Arts" April, 1925. Here's the link to the list: Leigh's Tatted Pineapple List

PRISCILLA The popular women's magazine "Modern Priscilla" published a large number of craft booklets as well - three of which are for tatting. They've been reproduced and republished in many different places. I've moved the listing and reviews of the booklets to their own page so that you don't have to scroll so much to get past them. Most of the booklets are for needlework disciplines other than tatting, but I will list them all on this page along with the reviews for those I actually have original copies of. "Modern Priscilla" stopped publication in June 1930, and was folded into another popular women's magazine of the time, "Needlecraft: The Home Arts", which enjoyed regular publication for another decade after the merger.

Tower Press, Inc. put out a slew of Blue Ribbon Pattern Books in 1970, which were simply reprinted patterns and articles from the pages of their many magazine titles. They were printed on the same cheap newsprint as the magazines, without the glossy cover - or any artwork except a generic blue ribbon logo. If you've seen one cover, you've seen them all(see the thumbnail cover in entry below this one). I only know of eight(8) of the series that included tatting patterns(p-110, p-150, p-170, p-175, p-220,p-380, p-480,p-490). "P-160: 23 Old Time Patterns" may have some tatting in it as well, since p-170-5 have the same title. I've gone ahead and made up a page for the titles of the series I'm aware of. Keep in mind it is not complete!

WELDON'S PRACTICAL NEEDLEWORK was a women's periodical of primarily knitting and crochet patterns that ran from 1885 to about 1935 - nearly 50 years! Few issues contained tatting, but there were a few. Each issue was numbered, and the issues were subtitled for the discipline(s) they contained. Piecework magazine published a really lovely 12 volume set of reprints of the first series, which was originally compiled and released as a series of books around 1888. The reboot, labeled (new series) on the covers, began in 1886 and that was the series that ran on to about 1935. Here's the link for the review and catalog page:

WINIFRED WORTH CLARK(pen-name) "Grandmother Clark" published at least 31 books on a very wide array of disciplines, two of which have tatting in them and were published under the name "Worth", not Clark. So this link is in two places, so as not to confuse those who only know about the tatting books. Becky Clark and I have started coming across books other than the two with tatting, so like the other designers from this time period, Winifred now has her own personal page. Becky came up with some interesting biographic information on the person behind the persona. In order to bring up the pop-up page, just click: WINIFRED WORTH CLARK

MAGAZINE BIBLIOGRAPHY

I've had a pretty good handle of what magazines carried tatting patterns - I've been collecting "Workbasket" since I was fourteen and have always kept an eye open for potential new treasure troves. But I had no clue about the newsletters that dedicated tatting fans diligently produced for other fans who actually knew about each other. Georgia Seitz included a great list in her wonderful collection "Tatting With Friends". I've been busy trying to track down the publishers to nail down more bibliography information and hopefully buy at least a sample issue or two. Anyone who knows how to get in touch, or has sample issues(or even stories about how the newsletter came about) can get in touch with me at akamoraih@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.

The Early Summer 2021 issue has Cary Karp's marvelous article on early tatting "Knotting and Tatting: The Dual Role of the Shuttle as a Fashion Accessory and Instrument of Decoration", starts on page 8-47. If you are as fascinated with the early history of our discipline as I am, this is a must-read. We don't have a lot of historical documentation to draw from, but what there is, I think Cary found it. The Association of Dress Historians makes their professional journal available for free on-line, and I believe Cary's article isn't the only one that you'll find interesting. Cary also has a blog where he makes his other articles available: https://loopholes.blog/publications/#knotting-tatting
