Maybe it's just because I'm a Brooklynite who didn't grow up during the Victorian era, but when I heard that April 1st is International Tatting Day (don't laugh), I assumed it was a day to finally get that tattoo you've been talking about. As it turns out, the holiday has nothing to do with getting inked, but is actually a day to celebrate lace tatting. That's right, the art of creating the elegant lace found on dress collars and old-school doilies. How do you celebrate International Tatting Day, you ask? Why, by tatting lace and eat chocolate, of course. This sounds like a holiday I could easily get behind, so let's take a look at this mesmerizing craft.
