Re: Traveling and Tatting
I would contact the airlines you plan to fly and ask for their guidelines on what is acceptable on their flights. Then, you're at the mercy of the airport security. I fly with my tatting and have never had a problem with anything. My post shuttles don't have hooks, so I usually use large enough threads (20-30-40) on the plane that I can use the pick for joins. Small folding scissors are okay. I've even taken my round Clover cutter, but I now understand that some airlines don't like those. Nail clippers work fine in most cases. I also have at least one very small tapestry needle, but I find sewing in ends on a plane is more trouble than it's worth. The lighting isn't good enough for my old eyes. Hiding ends has to wait till I'm on the ground.
