Q&A with Marilee Rockley

paula22 asked:
i am just learning this skill did good but i use needle. can i use needle for shuttle patterns as well.? please respond thank you beautiful works i am looking for patterns jewelry but have not been able to find any. what do you suggest.
Marilee Rockley answered:
My own patterns are written from a shuttle tatting perspective, but many of them would work well for needle tatting too. But if you're just starting out with needle tatting, it would be much easier to use a pattern written specifically for the needle. I would recommend the patterns by TotusMel on Etsy, or the needle tatting books by Barbara Foster at Handy Hands Tatting.
