I have to say that this class showed me what I was missing from the "Learn to Tat" book. The techniques shown are wonderfully displayed. I have to say that I too was disappointed that there were so many references to using the other book to learn tatting techniques. I had purchased the book prior to the class and hope that I will be able to understand the un-knotted beginning and finishing techniques there. I have purchased many other classes from Annie's Attic and have not noticed that I would have to purchase other items to complete the training sessions. Like Yanna B. below, I believe that "finishing" should be incorporated in the beginner's course. With all that said, I'm looking forward to incorporating tatting into my cards, holiday decorations, and clothing.

I thought it was great. She explained it well. Was very easy to understand. Great for a beginner. I really didn't think much about loading up the shuttle and that it was done a certain way. I would recommend this to anyone just learning.

I had been trying to learn to tat for years and no one could get it to sink in. After numerous classes I gave up till I discovered this class, and for some reason bingo, it just all worked and I am tatting edging for hankies. Very easy to understand and great up close videos, (most of the videos on the internet the teacher has their finger or thumb in the way and you can't see most of what they are doing). I would also like to see instructions on adding thread and tatting directly onto fabric.

Was disappointed. It does not provide much useful information. The instructor does not show many things, for example how to add thread to a shuttle on how to join last chain made with the beginning of work and so on. Also in the overview of the class, it said that one of the project is beautiful heart and there is a picture of it in the list of class projects, but there is no pattern for it, no explanations how to make it. Think for this price the class could include more techniques how to tat. Wanted to get money back, sent two messages via customer care form, never got answer. Poor class, poor service.

Yana - This is a beginner class and for new tatters they are instructed to tie on a new thread at the end of a chain. More advanced techniques are shown in the Learn to Tat book with DVD also sold at We were sorry to hear you were dissatisfied and customer services has granted your request.
