  1. Wow! Tatting Shuttles 3¢ each!?! I’d be in shuttle heaven! Well, I have to say, even though the prices back then were great…it’s all relative with inflation throughout the years! I am glad I live in this day and age!

      I didn’t even know what “tatting” was. You have a very cool blog about the craft and I look forward to checking it out more.
