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.
