The art of tatting has produced some of the most beautiful, imaginative, and intricate designs in the history of needlework. Over 100 of the best of those designs — many of them overlooked and out of circulation for generations — have been selected for this unique collection from the pages of long out-of-print thread company leaflets of the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.

The designs range from tiny coasters to a handsome checkerboard luncheon set and include elegant collars, elaborate tracery patterns for doilies and luncheon mats, and delicately beautiful edgings for pillowcases, guest towels, and table mats. Among the highlights: a distinctive Victorian tray mat, a handkerchief with a butterfly corner, heirloom baby caps and bonnets, a sunburst doily, and a spectacular jabot collar.

This rich treasury of tatting classics, complete with full instructions and a photograph of each creation, offers needleworkers a dazzling assortment of time-honored designs that are ideal for home, family, and personal use, and perfect as gifts that exquisitely display the giver's needlework expertise.
