    Not sure if this is where I am to post this question (asking as it is non-quilting related

    I am looking for " Needle Tatting Patterns" and have not had much luck. Is there someone out there that does tatting and has a link for me to view or patterns that they could share with me. I do have a few (patterns) that I have made & could trade

    I haven't tatted since I was a child and an elderly aunt supervised me. I found the following websites with free patterns to check out:
    http://www.allcrafts.net/tatting.htm
    http://www.craftown.com/tat.htm
    http://www.bellaonline.com/subjects/3737.asp
    http://www.be-stitched.com/tattingpatterns.asp
    http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~nickeb/

    and there are probably some good tatting books on Amazon.

    Ooh! I see you do needle tatting. What I was taught was shuttle tatting. Some of the websites I posted say the patterns are adaptable to needle tatting. Found these websites that are specific to needle tatting:

    Thank you soooo much for posting these links....wow, am I going to be busy tatting these different patterns. You are so appreciated for leading me to these links. I am not sure what I am doing wrong when I "google" for these links and did not get to...but have bookmarked now! Shuttle tatting patterns and needle are pretty much the same ( I have no problems reading the patterns and everything I have read should beable to make

    I have a tatting site: http://www.tattingjustforyou.com it deals in very simple tatting patterns, books, shuttles, free patterns and instruction.

    Also a blog: http://tattypatty.blogspot.com

    Free step by step tutorials. I think every one of my patterns are just as easy to do in needletatting. I use only basic stitches which are the same in both shuttle and needletatting. Hope you come visit.

    I learned needletatting a couple of months ago. I don't prefer it but wanted to see if I could reproduce my patterns using the needle. I had no trouble.

    I see all these patterns that say "cut and tie"...what's the best way to do that? I learned to shuttle tat a few years ago, but don't do much because I have so much trouble with the tying...HELP!

    I have some difficult with that also, I do cut & tie leaving a little extra string...thread into a needle and pull the ends through my tatting piece to bury the lose thread. However, maybe "tattypatty" has something she can post to help us out. I will see if one of my books that I bought at class has anything and will get that information to you. Are you a shuttle or needle tat?

    That would be great...any help would be way more than I have now. I do shuttle tatting. I can make some pretty good designs, as long as I don't have to tie. Those patterns are few and far between. I suppose at some point I'll need to learn other more advanced techniques also, but first I just really want to be able to end my pieces LOL!

    The best way I can suggest is what most of you are already doing. Leave a good length of thread and thread a needle - then work the thread back thru the pattern. I then cut the thread put a drop of glue for material on the end of the thread. I hope you visit my blog. There are several free patterns already on there. Its brand new and its specially for new tatters but some veteran tatters are also enjoying it.
