Welcome to the Tatting Corner, the sister site to Zig-Zag Corner Quilts & Baskets!!!
We are so excited to offer this site dedicated to tatters everywhere. We have a wide range of tatting-related products such as tatting threads, laces and other fiber arts products. Our large selection of tatting threads includes some discontinued and hard-to-find tatting threads in a large range of sizes that we have purchased. Supplies of discontinued or hard-to-find tatting threads will be limited so our stock will vary from day to day.
Tatting threads are not just for Tatting, but are equally at home with bobbin work, crochet, knitting, bobbin lace as well as embellishments for quilts and much more.
Our goal at the Tatting Corner is to build a large selection of tatting supplies. Among items we carry: Tatting books, tatting shuttles, tatting needles, Handy Hands tatting, tatting kits, tatting thread including premium and popular tatting threads such as Altin Basak, Oren Bayan, Lizbeth, DMC Cordonnet, DMC Metallic Embroidery, DMC Pearl, DMC Traditions, Flora, Olympus, Majestic and hard-to-find imported threads such as Cebelia, Fincrochet, Freccia, Hakelgarn, Kreinik Metalics, Omega and YLI silks.
For those of you tatting special craft gifts, we have a large supply of satin eggs and satin balls in a variety of sizes and colors.
Best of all, Tatting Corner shipping is FREE for orders of $100 or more. For orders under $100, we charge a flat rate of $6.95 for domestic US shipments. Check out our online catalog for all your tatting supplies.
AND THE HOLIDAY GIFT CERTIFICATE WINNERS ARE...
We are pleased to announce the winners of the $25 Holiday Gift Certificate Contest. The contest ran for 7 weeks with 1 winner drawn from each week's sales.
Robert Forman (New Jersey). Robert has been making string pictures since 1969 and has posted galleries of his work on his website, www.robertforman.net.
Mary Eusterbrock (Missouri). Mary has been quilting for about 40 years and embroiders her quilts for her children. She has also made Christmas stocking for them.
Wendy Laubach (Texas)
Sharon Fawns (Kentucky)
Wendy Shu (Singapore). Wendy loves using Lizbeth threads in her creations and she says she buys from the Tatting Corner because of the excellent sales service and help in keeping shipping costs low. Wendy has been tatting since 2006 after taking a class at a local craft store.
Liz Ellis (North Carolina). Liz says "I grew up living with my grandmother and had never heard of tatting. When I was14, I worked in a nursing home where I met a resident by the name of Marian who tatted. She explained that it was a lost art and not many people knew about it. She ultimately offered to give me unlimited lessons for $5.00. Many years later, I am still tatting..mostly around the holidays. :) 2 years ago, I discovered beaded tatting and the use of colors in new ways, making the lost art I learned 35 years ago fresh! Fortunately, it was around the same time that I discovered Tatting Corner allowing me to keep the renewed fire lit. Thank you for being there!"
Amy O'Malley (Minnesota). Amy says "I've been tatting about 20 years and I also make needle lace. I ordered from Tatting Corner because I have been working on a design for a tatted pumpkin and needed some orange and brown thread (I like the Lizbeth brand) and a few new shuttles because every shuttle I own must be attached to something in process because I couldn't find any free to use (how does that happen!), plus you had some new books that I did not have in my library. You had everything I was looking for in one place--a one stop shop! Thanks again!"
HERE ARE WINNERS OF THE 2013 SHOW 'N TELL CONTEST!
Congratulations to the winners of a $75 Gift Certificate!! We also wish to extend our appreciation to all the participants of the Show 'n Tell contest. All of the entries were so beautiful!
Here is a link to a beautifully done video honoring fallen firefighters: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N5fFctrf4Q It was produced in Hamilton County.
NEW SHIPPING CHOICE FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Although the Tatting Corner continues to offer shipping to international addresses, there is now another choice. Bongo International offers international shoppers the convenience of a U.S. or E.U. address where their orders can be shipped and even combined with orders they have placed from other merchants in order to enjoy cheaper international shipping fees.
We are pleased to partner with Bongo International.
CREATIVE THREAD CHALLENGE - CONTEST RESULTS
We thought it would be fun this summer to run a contest challenging tatters, knitters, crochetrs, quilters etc. to show us what they could do using Lizbeth's Size 3 Wildflower thread (#109) and then let viewers cast their vote for their favorite. And yes the best part of a challenge is you don't get to choose your own color: it is a color that is usually outside of your comfort zone etc. The entry receiving the most votes would then receive a $50 gift certificate and a Lizbeth Ball holder.
Unfortunately, we only received four entries so we are declaring them all winners! The entries are beautiful and demonstrate just how talented these ladies are. Our congratulations to Tamie Alliss, Ginny Bishop, Esther Paris and Karen Wattai! Thank you for participating in our challenge and making this a fun event.
