Q&A with Marilee Rockley

mooberly asked:
I've been curious about tatting, I'll have to check out that course. This set is absolutely stunning!
Marilee Rockley answered:
Thanks, a set of this type is not that hard to make, either. You just need the skills of ring, chain, join, and lock join.
scraplady asked:
Oh I wish I knew where to find those filigree in Canada....beautiful Marilee!!! TFS!
Marilee Rockley answered:
A lot of bead shops carry different types of filigree now, and there are a lot of Etsy shops selling them, so they aren't too hard to find. Simple ring and chain tatting combinations work well, joining into the filigree as needed.
