My illustrious alter-ego and I had a customer request for the return of our "Midsummer Night's Dream" colorway, but due to a miscalculation (Really I just put the pegs in the wrong holes on my skein winder :-) I wound this entire batch of thread at 40 yards per skein, instead of the standard 50.

So, this batch is currently in the shop, and is priced at a discount to reflect the shorter skein length.

I have sizes 10,20,and 40 in this color, as well as a few color collections with coordinating colors.

Time for Nami

Hello! My name is Agnieszka and I'm from Poland. In internet You can find me as Nami, which in Japanese means wave:)

I have been tatting for 7 years and making jewelry for 5 years. A year ago I decided to combine these two crafts and make tatted jewelry. I use my designs in tatted earrings, bracelets and necklaces. My tattings are very tiny and rigid, because of use of fine matallic threads. I like exclusive and elegant look so my jewerly is made from silver and minerals.

You can find my tattings and more on my blog

If You are interested in buying my jewerly is in Polish galleries (the possibility of shipping abroad) and

"Peace", "Berry Intense", and what on earth is a "yarnplayer"?

Hi all, yarnplayer here. The "yarn" part means I've always been interested in yarn crafts of all sorts. The "player" part can mean that I like playing with yarn, but it also means that in my spare time I play the cello. Hence, the cello player in my profile picture. Which, by the way, is an original handwoven tapestry that I wove myself, from my own handspun yarn.

I've been tatting over 30 years. I began hand dyeing thread for tatting in 2007, using the technique I learned at a dyeing workshop given by the local handweaver's guild. It occurred to me at the time, that tatters would enjoy hand dyed thread as much as weavers and knitters enjoy hand dyed yarn. I hand paint small batches, and I'm always experimenting with color. I DO NOT do custom orders, for a number of reasons. So, please enjoy choosing from what is in my Etsy shop, the selection is always changing.

I also design for tatting. Mainly jewelry, but I've designed a few doilies and other things, too. I've self published 2 books.

Have fun with your tatting!
