History of International Tatting Day
International Tatting Day was first celebrated in the late 1990s. Since then, this day has attracted many participants.
About 2000 years ago, a large shuttle to weave heavy ropes into fishing nets was used by fishermen. About 1000 years ago, sailors knew different types of knots to use on sailing ships. Bolin Knot is used for anchor; it's a slip stitch. All these ropes were passed on to weavers who used a smaller thread to make lace. The lace of the shuttles make is sewn on satin and velvet and the shuttles are smaller to accommodate this finer thread. Lace-making was known as a thriving business in Europe because royalty wore beautiful lace garments.
Tatting is one of the lanyards. Children and maids taught about torn hems were quickly purchased by weavers, who would add torn hems to the garment and charge a large sum for the garment.
In the UK, this place is called knotting. In France, it's called a frivoled. In the US, it's called tatting. In 1845 in Cork, Ireland, nuns developed the art of crocheting, knitting, and tearing. They saw the poor eating grass, so they sold their beautiful ropes and gave them to the poor. Irish immigrants came to America in tatters, and then they sold the torn ones to make money.
Many 19th-century women's magazines, such as Godey's and Harper's Bazaar, included in their issues tattered patterns and instructions. In the 1940s, Patterns for needlework, crochet, knitting, and quilting were introduced on a magazine called The Work Basket. It is increasingly popular among ladies to sew beautiful lace clothes for themselves and their families. In addition, they were also taught how to make pillows out of torn fabric
