The June 1948 Workbasket magazine offered these two tatted edgings which actually puzzled me at first. What kind of a header was that one side? Was it a lock stitch chain or maybe pearl tatted chain? So I stopped and went back to the instructions. Ah ha. I broke my own rule about reading the pattern first which naturally explained it all.
Join us to see what it is all about.

and https://www.georgiaseitz.com/public/wb/20190929wbedgingallchainmay59pg41.html

Here is an opportunity to learn how we added edgings sometimes in the 'old days.' If your hanky does not have prepared spokes into which to join, then you need a cloth-piercing crochet hook to make holes. Also you may take an awl or pattern pricker and make holes around the edge.

Our first meeting will be the good old meet and greet to rock the house. Every year we invite tatters to join us and fill the classroom. Our all time record was 73 tatters for first session. Wahoo! Come early, come late, just come and bring a friend, too!

and at: https://tipsaroundthehome.blogspot.com/2018/10/3-colour-cluny-tatting.html

Please read the 3-color cluny lesson and print it out before class. The photos are numbered and we will go through them in order. You may also bring the pattern up in another window and follow along that way. If you are working the cluny during class, please prepare the loom ahead of time and be ready to start. This will be a good but long lesson.
