A Glossary of Standard Tatting Terms

The Guild recommends a list of standardized terms and symbols but the downloadable list is by no means all inclusive. Always check a pattern for terms or symbols that a specific designer may use.

Learn to Tat

Palmetto Tatters are always ready to teach you to tat. If you are in the Lexington, SC area on the same day as a regular meeting, just stop in as we have thread, shuttles, and needles to borrow. If you want in person lessons, use the contact form and someone will be in touch with you shortly.


In this video clip, you will see the basic method of tatting. Learn to tat with Georgia Seitz. Basic Tatting Video Clip (WMV) or Basic Tatting (MP4). (Will take 15 to 30 minutes or longer to download. You may wish to save a copy to your computer for repeated viewing.) If you wish to share this video, please refer your friends to this web page. Thank you.

You may also subscribe to The Online Tatting Class on YouTube. There are many videos available to view. Live classes are available several times during the year. Register for classes (there is no charge) to be notified of upcoming events and classes.
