My book's done!

Here it is!

"Boutique Tatting"

25 numbered pages, over 60 color photos, hints on working with beads, 11 patterns. Not all of the patterns require beads - 3 don't. There are 4 earrings, 1 pendant, 1 cross bookmark, a snowflake, 1 bracelet, 1 hair ribbon (which could also be a bookmark), and 2 challenging necklaces. There are detailed written instructions, and color photos with stitch counts indicated, but not drawn diagrams. This is a book for people who already know the basics of shuttle tatting. It is a soft cover book, 8.5 by 11 inches, stapled in the center, printed on quality paper.

 Available in my Etsy shop.

Thank you so much, everyone!

My mailbox is stuffed with orders! Oops - I forgot all about signing any of the books. None of the books I sent out yesterday were signed, but then, nobody had yet requested it. I'll sign the book if I'm asked to at the time.

This is so exciting!

Sally, I always try to ship quickly, so your order was already on its way - I hope you received the email I sent you with the explanation of what could be done.

Does that "price includes shipping to anywhere" include shipping overseas (Australia)?

yarnplayer said...

Yes, shipping is included for Australia as well.

Melinda Brennan said...

Done! Thank you! :-)

one word... wow!

Ellen Norman said...

I am so impressed with your work. I am partial to knitting and have always wanted to learn to tat. Your site is just wonderful! I am hoping that I can try some of your designs. I just ordered some supplies. I had to use the "needle tat" since I am left handed. I ordered some new shuttles and then found your site. So I will give it a try. Just beautiful.

I have already ordered your book..forgot to ask for an autograph:-(...am in process of a thread order...can you tell me what size thread you suggest for the jewelry..so I can have the thread in time before a trip. thanks.

yarnplayer said...

Usually, I use size 20 thread for jewelry. Sometimes I'll use size 10. The Duchess necklace in the book was done in size 10 Hakelgarn, but when I tatted it later in size 10 Lizbeth, I noticed that the Lizbeth 10 is thicker. The pattern worked okay, but I needed less rings in the neckcord to get it to come out the same length.
