The book is a good way to learn shuttle tatting and with the DVD you can watch some one's hands making the motions which can be the hardest part of learning tatting. There are some errors in the doily pattern, though.
Even though I learned shuttle tatting from an actual person, I bought this book to brush up on the technique. I'm glad I did! Not only does the DVD help with the actual motions of the shuttle, it also gives you information on split rings and chains, which I'd found difficult to learn from printed material alone. Extremely helpful.
"Monday would not be Monday if there wasn’t a SUPER epistle from Nordic Needle. I just wish that I was closer to avail myself of all the workshops that you offer. I am grateful for your wonderful service of shipping etc. Love reading the bios of the ladies at the Nordic Needle. Keep up the good work. - Mary Ann
