Hi fellow tatters!
I like to take my needlework when I go to conferences, but have resisted taking my tatting because of the clicking. I can't help thinking it might bug people while they are trying to listen to a speaker to hear the plink plink of my Clovers, which are my favorite shuttles hands-down. I have some Aero shuttles, but they are also noisy, and some of the Sew-Mates--same thing.
I have some of the metal DMC shuttles, which I guess are quiet but I don't really like using them. They are a little heavy and the hook gets on my nerves.
I was drooling a bit over the Silent Tatters from Roseground, but two of them (I need two) plus a few extra bobbins, with S&H, was nearly $80. I'm not averse to paying that much but right at the moment it might be a bit beyond me. (And has anyone used the acrylic Silent Tatters? Any comments?)
Are there any other bobbins that are not noisy?
