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.
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.
TATTED BOOKMARKS CONTEST
Happy Fall everyone! It just doesn't seem possible that it is November already. I'm very excited that I'm playing catch up in the office this week, and I have the winners of the Bookmark Contest.
Congratulations to Eva G. from Virginia, Nancy K from Pennsylvania and Teresa W from Michigan!
And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the join our mailing list contest! And an even bigger THANK YOU to Ivy for tatting these beautiful bookmarks and to everyone in the Homeschool Network that are helping to keep needle arts and Tatting alive and well.
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.
