Review from the International Organization of Lace, Inc.

This is an excellent book for the beginning needle tatter. There are no patterns per se, but
rather good illustrations and instructions of components/techniques to get a beginner started.
There is a good abbreviation chart and basic instructions that cover finishing, care, and
stiffening options.”
