This year Jane Eborallorganised her TIAS again. Each couple of days she publishes a set of instructions and drawings which can be tatted. She doesn't tell what it will be when finished, so we all tat and imagine, guessing, until gradually the piece emerges. I didn't guess it was a pram, until the hood went on. Clever Jane. They are always good fun to do.
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
