Tatting the GR-8 Self-closing Mock Ring for GR-8 Design

44 designs, 72 pages
It has been ten years in the making and finally the Shuttle
Brothers have a new book available, Tatting the Self-
closing Mock Ring for GR-8 Design. The book is intended
to demonstrate the utilization of the Self-closing Mock
Ring (SCMR). The book is comprised of 72 pages and has
44 designs ranging from beginner to advanced skill levels.
The book uses a simple pattern outline and applies SCMR
variations for motifs, edgings, and collars. A brief section
on Split Rings is included and it introduces multiple rings
on rings and Pearl tatted SCMRs.
There should be something of interest for most tatters.
Due to the high rate of color publishing, we are only
offering the book in black and white. Our intent is to share
our ideas as affordably as possible. As such, we are
planning to sell this next book at the same price as our first.
The book retails at $20 each. Gary and Randy cover the cost of
shipping and handling.
