New Tatting Shuttles


All my new tatting shuttles have arrived!! They are all so beautiful! I have my tulip wood Silent Tatter, my David Reed Smith east Indian rosewood & the Shuttle Shop tulip wood with the engraved Celtic Knot. I love wood tools, & these are all exactly what I was hoping they'd be.

I find the David Reed Smith one to be lovely, but it's very thin, so I'm afraid of breaking the tip. It tats wonderfully, though because it's light as a feather!

The tulip wood Shuttle Shop shuttle is soooooooooooooo beautiful! I put just the lightest coating of my beeswax & oil polish on it, & the grain just popped!! It's has a solid, sturdy feel to it, but is still feather light!

My favorite is the Silent Tatter. Again, the grain in the tulip wood is just so stunning! I love being able to adjust the tension so minutely, & the brass pieces really add to the beauty of the shuttle!

My Christmas list is made out & ready to hand to hubby. Yeah, another Silent Tatter, & one of those Opal Shuttle Shop shuttles, please Santa!

Here are my new shuttles:

Your shuttles are lovely! Don't be afraid to use the one from David Reed Smith. I've had mine for years, and they are wonderful! Shuttle Shop shuttles are fabulous, and I love my Silent Tatter. Do you have any of LadyShuttleMaker's ceramic shuttles? They're musical! ...or one from Grizzly Mountain Arts? They are unbelievably special! I may be more addicted to shuttles than to the actual tatting process! Can't wait to see what you make next!

Hi Katie Mac! Your new shuttles are beautiful! I hope you enjoy them. You should get a lot of tatting mileage out of them!

Now lets see. Addicted to HDT, Crazy about hand made shuttles and feel a need to collect them and can't get enough thread. Yes, I would say you have officially joined the world of tatting. Welcome and I am sure you will enjoy your new shuttles. I get my David Reed Smith shuttles with the brass tip so I don't have to worry about the point wearing away. Use your new shuttles it makes tatting more enjoyable.
