A curated list of over 50 tatting blogs :)

**Edit August 12th 2017- this blog post has had so many hits, I have made it into it’s own permanent page: https://onemadtatter.wordpress.com/links-to-over-50-other-free-tatting-blogs/  

A list has been circulating proclaiming the ‘top 75 tatting blogs’ and then asking for credit card details to access the sites. When I realised my blog was on this list and that all of the blogs on the list are actually free to access, I was a bit annoyed (thanks to my followers who alerted me to this situation too).

I don’t usually post curated lists of links as blog posts. I usually share sites, videos and products I have used. So, without changing my operating methods, this blog post is an extended listing of tatting blog sites I have visited and enjoy reading. If you would like to visit them too, simply click on the links 🙂 You can then choose to follow the bloggers through email or RSS feeds. And there is no monetary charge to access these links.

If you have a tatting blog that isn’t on this list, please add it in the comments (or message me through facebook- one mad tatter) and I will progressively add them to this blog post too. If I have listed your blog and you wish it to be removed, please let me know. If you want different information listed next to your link, please let me know about this too.

As always, happy tatting

  • The list below is not exhaustive – it is a work in progress.
  • Some listed sites have a descriptor next to them- this is either a short sentence from me or taken from the about page, if the blog has one.
  • Blogspot attached a ‘.au’ ending to all blogspot blogs, as I am in Australia. This should not effect your ability to access the site, and don’t be concerned if the ‘.au’ ending changes to your countries ending.

We are a mother (Hye-oon) and daughter (Eunice) team residing in Seattle, Washington.  Hye-oon Lee started tatting twenty-five years ago. Within a year of learning how to tat, she started designing her own patterns. She is inspired by the natural world, and enjoys spending time outdoors with her family. Eunice Lee is a designer who enjoys taking photos. When she isn’t working in front of the computer, she is typically exploring the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, reading books, or watching movies.

This is where I share my latest adventures in fiber and send people to begin their journey into the world of tatting. Enjoy your visit.

http://yarnplayertats.blogspot.com.au/ Hello, my name is Marilee Rockley. I live in the exciting, culturally diverse area of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with my husband and 3 sons.

Over the years I’ve experimented with many fiber arts, but tatting remains my favorite. I discovered tatting in my youth when I found a small needlework how-to book stashed among my mother’s art books. Between those sketchy instructions, library books, and trial and error, I soon taught myself and fell in love with the art.
