The basics of tatting in 3 steps – Tomoko Morimoto

BasesFrivolitéThis book is above all a very good book for beginners: clear explanations with photos, patterns and perfect models for beginners.

Unfortunately, it seems that this book became not found in French. If you wish at any price, you can still find it in English under the name New Tatting: Modern Lace Motifs & Projects



Tatting shuttles to : Volume 1, The improved fundamentals – Edwige Renaudin

RenaudinThis is by far my favorite book. We must consider this book as an encyclopedia (incomplete, but already significant) of tatting techniques.

To learn the basics, I do not advise, but to deepen, this is an excellent book.

Aesthetically, Japanese books are much more attractive. But to override this aspect to see that it is incomparably richer!

If you can still find the, hurry: he is exhausted at the & rsquo; editor.


Frivolité : Laces shuttles – Pascale Provost

ProvostIt gives me a good book, pleasant to leaf. Pretty pictures, interesting patterns, some that I love. It's sometimes a bit repetitive (the same basis is declined in different forms).

The models are available in size 80 or 100 and are difficult for a beginner.





Accessories for tatting – Takako Troll Kitano

SpecterThis book has everything you love in Japanese books: beautiful pictures with its special aesthetic.

For beginners, the technical explanations are quite clear, although the presentation makes them less easy to follow as the previous book. But again, they are models without beads, So a book suitable for beginners.

For more experienced, I will say that the book contains many classic frivolity.



24 Snowflakes in Tatting – Lene Bjorn

24flakesThis is an English book cheap, Affordable with a rudimentary knowledge of English.

The models are very interesting. They are not suitable for beginners.




Exquisite frivolity – Sumi Fujishige

exquise-frivoleThis is a very nice book which models are interesting. Sumi Fujishige managed the feat of making models accessible to beginners, but also original and interesting for more experienced.

The photos are superb, with placemats, but also a variety of & rsquo; accessories.

The technical explanations present the basics of tatting in a clear and attractive way and can afford to start.

Once again I regret & rsquo; use glue for finishing works… but c & rsquo; is about the only complaint that & rsquo; can be.

If you can still find the, n’hésitez pas: il est en rupture de stock chez l’éditeur.
