This is the first and only one I have made. It is made from isacord thread using aquamesh plus stabilizer. I posted these pictures on facebooks and immediately a couple of friends want to buy 2 sets each, a set being four. I have never sold stuff before that I've made, but the friends seem seriously interested and these are fun and easy to do. The thread cost about $5.50 and I am not sure what the stabilizer cost, but these are fairly inexpensive to make. What would a fair price be?

That's beautiful. I wish I had it to share with my tatting group next Thursday. It is also something I would be interested in learning. Did you have instructions? Or did you use your creative genes? I might buy one if you do decide to sell them.

I did this on my Bernina 830. Used the medium hoop and I think two would fit. Sorry, I do not know the first thing about tatting. This is so easy to set the machine and walk away, it's like cheating!

I wouldn't go less than $15 a set...the aqua stuff and stabilizer aren't cheap, and the thread is $5.50. You have around $8 in supplies.

I would charge $10 per set of 4 or set of 6 for $12.50?

I know that if I was going to buy them...I would pay 2-for 10.00 and maybe 2 for 12.00 if I was giving them for a gift. Even though they are really nice I would not pay any more than that. But that could just be me...You also may want to sell them with the wine glasses instead of by themselves.

Whatever you charge, don't underprice them. They are also uncommon and could sell in a boutique shop, so price accordingly.

Very pretty, too!
