Q&A with LML

sewmom asked:
AMAZING - how hard is it to learn tatting? I love the look of these, and I would love to add them to my jewelry designs. I already crochet and knit, does that make it easier or harder, LOL??
LML answered:
Thank you! I do not know if knitting or crocheting would make the learning any easier or not as I only tat. It did take a bit of time to master what is called the "flip" of the stitch, which is the basis of how tatting works. I am very new to this art form and I'm loving learning anything and everything I can about it. Shuttle tatting is where I started and have just recently begun to learn needle tatting, which I feel is much easier and quicker to pick up ( no "flip" needed). I encourage you to give it a try, there are several tutorials on YouTube that could be very helpful. Thanks again for your kind words!!
