Jane's Technique Page for the Double Core SSSR

Many of you in the online tatting community are well aware of Jane Eborall and her generous gifts to those of us who tat. Her gifts consist of timeless hours spent making technique pages, pattern pages, blog posts, and TIAS (Tat It And See) pages for all who tat to enjoy. She does this for free. She is kind to all who wish to learn anything about tatting...whether it's how to learn tatting in the beginning stages or how to proceed with a very advanced tatting technique. She is so well known by those of us who tat that you could almost call her a "famous" tatter. LOL! I laugh only because tatting itself is not that well-known, so to be a "famous" tatter is not saying much in the "fame scale". In the tatting world, however, Jane is a jewel in the tatting community's crown. Yet she carries this off without a sense of grandiosity.

Well, I am "going on", aren't I? So, "What's all this about?", you may be wondering. You see, Jane has created a technique page for the revised SSSR (Single Shuttle Split Ring) that I "demonstrated" in a previous post! Why am I making such a big deal about it??? It IS a big deal! Jane Eborall made a technique page based on something I (little ol' me) shared? WOW! I'm honored!

So, without further adieu:

Here's the page!



Thank you for stopping by! I hope that if you do tat that Jane's presentation might give a different perspective on a new technique! If you do not tat, be sure and stop by Jane's blog, "Tatting and Nothing Much Else" and give her a quick hello! Be sure to stop by her technique and pattern pages if you are interested in learning something new in tatting. Her pages are like a free online encyclopedia of tatting techniques!

I'd love to hear from you before you go!

Yes, Jane is definitely THE Tatters's Tatter. I have gone to her site many, many times, to get clarification on a technique. If you need it, it is most likely there, simply stated and easy to follow. Kudos to J.E.!

Thank you, Betzie! It is nice to have a friend like Jane online. I'm fortunate to have many friends who tat online!

Hi Fox! I think I've been visiting Jane's site since the mid-to-late 90's when my roommate had a laptop and let me get online once in awhile. I am so glad to have my own computer these days. I have learned a lot from her and Tatman!

I agree, Farm Chick Paula! The internet is a fabulous place to have at our disposal! I am so gald I can learn anything I want to in a mere matter of seconds! It's so cool!
