Hello Tatting World!

Welcome to my new Blog on Tatting.  Following the lead of some of my friends and also responding to the requests of my Tatting Students I have started on this new project to publish my Tatting designs.  I trust you will enjoy the samples of my Tatting.

The name of this Site may seem a wee bit presumptuous to some.  Like the popular ‘Dog Whisperer’ and ‘Horse Whisperer’ before that, both helped others to get a handle on what they need to do for success with their critters.  A friend of mine became the ‘Yarn Whisperer’. She is amazing with her Knitting. So why not ‘Tatting Whisperer’? Yes! Why not?!?

I help people to be able to begin Tatting and also get a handle on their Tatting to the point of beginning to design with me. I have been teaching Tatting since 1976 and have students all over the world.  There isn’t much I haven’t done with a Tatting Shuttle.

My greatest delight is teaching others how to Tat. The second delight is creating something new with my Tatting Shuttles.

I hope you will benefit from what you find on this Site in days to come.



About The Tatting Whisperer

Hi my name is Murray Lincoln. I am now retired and loving the free time to create with my Tatting and Wood Carving, sometimes bringing the two together. I began my journey with Tatting in 1975. While visiting my Great Aunt in a Senior's Home in Des Moines, Iowa, she told me the story of my Great Grandpa that was a Tatter. As well he was a Wood Carver and had carved three Hickory Shuttles for his three daughters. One of these daughters was my Grandma Lincoln. My Grandma Lincoln may have been the greatest Tatter ever - so my Great Aunt told me. Grandma Lincoln Tatted from age 8 years until she passed away in her 80s. Today I am a Tatter, so are my two daughters and also my Granddaughter Emma. six Generations now have carried on this beautiful craft. My Web Site featuring my creations is http://www.murraylincoln.com/

    Hi Murray,

    I moved to Toronto from California nearly two years ago. On a recent trip to Wichita to see my father in law I learned about tatting. I’m interested in learning how to do it. I found a yarn shop in Wichita that would give lessons, unfortunately I won’t be in here long enough to take the lessons. I’ve been looking online for classes in Toronto, but haven’t had much luck locating any. I’m wondering if you might have any leads?

      I am part of a “local” group entitled the “Fringe Tatters”- in Ontario and parts of the states bordering the Great Lakes. There are Fringe Tatters in the Toronto area. I am located in Peterborough just north and east of T.O. Try contacting Ruth Maceachern and I believe that will help you connect. Each year in September the Fringe Tatters have a weekend set aside in a hotel in Cambridge Ontario – where all the Tatters meet. I will drop Ruth a note that you may contact here too.

      Love your name BTW – I am married to “Alida”

    Thank you Murray. I’ve sent the group an email, I believe it is Ruth that checks them. Hopefully I will be able to start tatting in no time!

    My name means “little armed one” in Latin :D. I was named after my mother, who was born “Almida” but changed it when she became a US citizen.
