    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Sorry not a lefty but I do tat. My 2 sisters are left handed. I can't tat well with a shuttle but I love needle tatting. Have you tried it? I taught myself from the net and I like how you are not limited to the crochet cotton on the shuttle.

    Welcome to the QB!
    I'm a lefty, but craft-wise am more ambidextrous - I can't use scissors or sharp knives with my left hand but can use both hands for rotary cutting, when one side gets tired I just switch hands. I knit and crochet right handed, am attempting to learn needle tatting from a video I have had for years, hadn't really thought about it but probably do that right handed too. I really am a lefty - just have learned to adapt when necessary.

    Welcome from Washington! I'm a lefty, but do not do tatting. I tend to do some things with either hand. Perhaps could you watch someone by sitting across from them to get an idea-?

    Welcome from North Dakota. Haven't ever tatted but sound interesting. Have a great day.

    Welcome from the Sierras! I'm a right handed tatter that uses both shuttles and needles (not at the same time - LOL). I hope you find a lefty!
