As a native Vermonter winters in Vermont are long and yes an abundance of falling sparkly snowflakes fall among us!! There’s some truth and laughter about what my Dad says regarding winters in Vermont… “There is 9 months of winter followed by 3 months of poor skiing…” True! So, during the months of off-season I am tatting snowflakes! The 6 pointed star snowflake is one the mysteries of nature... and I love to recreate them with tatting.
Tatting and it's origins are still unknown-perhaps the Egyptians were the first to create this fine lace - or perhaps it was fishermen or was it the french? We do know there is a renewed interest in the making of this fine lace. The art of tatting is truly a dying art. Tatting is meditative-creating and counting slip knots is what makes this lacy design come to life. The tools needed are a shuttle and thread and the fine dexterity of fingers and of course patience. Enjoy your Art year around…
