Tatting has been described as “threads lovingly shaped around air to create beautiful lace.” Tatting was considered very fashionable for the higher classes during the 18th & 19th centuries. The shuttle and thread were carried in a little knotting bag and a fashionable lady would never be seen without one.
Visit Ross Farm Museum this weekend and chat with our interpreters as they demonstrate the beautiful art of both needle and shuttle tatting.
