SUMMARY- I like Ms. Fitch's filet crochet patterns more than her tatting - but she put out some quite elegant patterns. There are some lovely tatted pieces in this one, and not just a token one or two! The title is misleading - one of the reasons I am trying to fill in these series, because it is more often the case than not. She was quite prolific over a 5 year period in pumping out little fashion books full of these pattern collections. I believe my copy is a reprint(it advertises up through Series #15 of this run), so my Table of Contents may be missing some patterns from the first printing.
