WINDING SHUTTLE - Class Video: How to wind a tatting shuttle with thread
    1. Post Style
      1. Windmill
      2. Walk on
    2. Bobbin Style:
      1. Stick it on the end of shuttle, or a pencil
      2. Use the bobbin winder on a sewing machine

      TIPS: If using a shuttle w/ a hook – point hook away from you so no snagging.
      If using a pick “backwards” be sure you don’t skewer yourself – OUCH

    Happy Tatting! We will see you in class.
