A New Toy
This is my new toy. An electric Bobbin Winder. If you read my Blog, you will know that I already have a Shuttle winder for post shuttles. That of course didn't help me, when I bought a Pop-A-Bobbin shuttle. I spotted an advert for the Bobbin Winder on Jane's Blog. The funny thing is, Jane hadn't seen the advert at all, which shows you that an advert isn't an endorsement from the Blog owner, which of course we all knew. It does sort of associate that person with the product, though. Anyway, my daughter bought one on line for my birthday, and I am thrilled to bits with it. It winds bobbins very quickly, and doesn't twist the thread. This leaves more time for tatting, which must be good, right?
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
