Gifts for the Sewing Enthusiast: A Bit of History

by This is Carrie on March 11, 2010

My mom strikes again as one of the best gift-givers ever.

For my birthday in February, not only did she find me that cool, tin sewing sign, she gave me this length of hand-tatted trim that was given to her by a coworker right before she married my dad over 50 years ago. The co-worker had intended my mom to use it on something for her first baby, but she never did, instead passing it onto me, her last “baby” with a sweet note added to the original envelope.

Wow. Tatting. I think of that as one of those things I’ll do when I’m old and immobile. It’s so pretty!

Oh wow! I’m a novice tatter myself (finally learned shuttle tatting this past fall after being intimidated and sticking with needle tatting for ages… wish I hadn’t waited so long, it’s so easy– if anyone sees this and is interested, I loved the book and DVD combination in “Learn to Tat”), so how exciting to see that. Love the pattern, and what a sweet story to go with it.
