Thread: Where to buy a tatting shuttle

    Where to buy a tatting shuttle

    Every year when it comes to "gift" season (birthday, Christmas, just because) people ask me what I want. Plus, sometimens I just want to spoil myself. So, I've decided that I need to get everyone to start buying me tatting shuttles. To do that of course, I need to direct them to shuttle sources. I know a few, but I know you guys know more.

    What can you add to my list?

    Crone Findlay Creations

    Handy Hands Tatting Fancy Shuttles (USA)

    Silent Stitches

    Grizzly Mountain Arts

    The Shuttle Shop

    Roseground.com (UK)

    Be-stitched.com (USA)

    Lacis (USA)

    David Reed Smith

    GR-8 Shuttles (USA)


    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    I am totally amazed that you can make such beautiful shuttles.

    Ok, I know that somebody actually makes the shuttles, but in my imagination they're made in a factory with fancy machines and the whole bit.
    But it seems that isn't the true story - looks like many of the shuttles are hand made.

    I have a question on silent shuttles.

    Can someone who uses them please tell me how they are different from other shuttles, and why you like them (I did read somewhere, and can't remember where, they are lovely shuttles). Also, I would be interested in knowing who sells these?

    TIA
    regards, Liz

    Silent Tatter Shuttles are sold through Roseground in the UK. They are a bobbin-type shuttle that uses the Pfaff sewing machine bobbins. They are made by Edwin Clarke. I have several and I love them as they are easier for me to control the tension than the ones I have from GR8. It will just take me some time to get use methodology down pat for the GR8 shuttles.

    I do have a number of David Reed Smith shuttles as well as a number of other shuttle makers, including Richard & Georgia Seitz. I love them all and use them for different projects. For some reason, different shuttles will say "Use me, use me ... I'm best for that ..." I do try to listen to my shuttles!!
    Happy Tatting!!
