Hi. My name is Ben Fikkert. I'm a male tatter. I've been tatting since 1978. I only do shuttle tatting, but I have been fumbling with needle tatting a bit as well. I've written three books on tatting (the first two are out of print, but I ship copied versions of them).
I just finished another doily with a fractal pattern based on heptagons, see below.
If you have any questions or comments, contact me here.
