Marilee Rockley has been a driving force in modern tatting. Her designs, which have appeared in various magazines as well as her book <i>Tatted Jewelry</i>, make this Victorian art accessible to modern tastes. As a go-to source of information about tatting history and methodology, Marilee is on the forefront of the tatting revival. She also dyes her own tatting threads, so that she can control color and create visual interest that can't be found in commercial threads.
