  1. I just love your videos.   I am a beginner to tatting and your simple, clear instructions are making learning a breeze.  Thanks for sharing your skill!

  2. I enjoy learning needle tatting with you!  Will you please show a tutorial on hoe to finish the projects?  I assume that the ends are sewn in, but since I have never engaged in needle tatting before, I'm not sure how some of your projects are finished off.  This also applies to projects such as making a chain, how is that project finished; does it end on a circle or chain and what is the best way to hide the ends?  Would you also be willing to share a pattern that calls for "Josephine's knot"?
    Thank you kindly for sharing so much useful and fun information and projects!!!!!

  3. Ciao, sono una principiante appassionata di chiacchierino e vorrei imparare dai tuoi tutorials, ma purtroppo non capisco l'inglese, ti chiedo , se possibile, aggiungere sui tuoi video delle scritte esplicative con le spiegazioni in italiano. Grazie mille ciao a presto!!

  4. Maria,
    Would you PLEASE make a pair of earrings by covering a ring in needle tatting and then making a pretty edging that comes out from the ring? The only ones I can find on YouTube are in a foreign language and I don't understand how they are making them.

  5. I asked if you would please do a pair of tatted earrings on a ring, here is one that I like but I'd like to see more picots along the edge, more dainty or feminine. Shoot, it won't paste the address in here but there is one on YouTube done in red and on a ring and it has a lacy outer edge to it.

  6. I enjoy your videos. I'm new to tatting. In your video on how to make earrings you didn't show how to finish them off. What do you do with thread that's left over, and still attached to the earring? Keep making learning videos.

  7. I love yr video I will try it. it seems it's a modern way to this art with a hand needle. thanks for teaching us.

  8. Thank You for the video. I am a beginner and I love the earrings. You are a great teacher and your camera shows everything on how you handle the needle and thread. I made my first pair of earrings. Thank you so much. Looking forward to all of your tatting videos. How do you starch the earrings?

  9. That's for the great instructions! I especially like your tip for using the clear thread to get your string through a small bead when a needle won't fit. I'm new to tatting, but I've been beading for years and that tip will certainly come in handy!

  10. SLOWED the vid down but you're still too fast. Can you do a tutorial on how to make these earrings, s-l-o-w-l-y-?

  11. thank you for the tips and tricks, your work is supper Finally found a teacher who speaks English so I understand your worki

  12. Thank you for the tutorial and I appreciate the handy trick using monofilament to bring thread back thru the beads! I think I am ready to attempt this project now??

  13. I did it!!!!! i made my first pair of earrings!! i am sooo excited! I didn't have monofilament, so before i started this project I hardened the end of my thread with [Joann store brand clear school] glue (per one of your other videos) and let dry. i used the hardened end to thread on the beads and to weave back thru larger beads after installing the earring hook. Thank you!
