    I havnt had time to research this yet but I'll write more about what this book is all about.
    It's from the 60's and to be honest I dont know what tatting is : )

      Tatting is making lace, edging for doilies, pillowcases, etc. Almost like crochet.

      I'm reminded of the expression 'old tat'.
      'tat'
      http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tat&defid=1590708

      Lace was expensive.
      Tatting was a cheap alternative to lace.
      Secondhand lace was called 'tat'.
      Old lace was discarded and became 'old tat'.

      By extension in Cockney London anything second-hand was 'tat'.
      In the sixties second-hand dealers were called 'tatters' or 'totters' scornfully.
      In my youth I was called a 'tat-queen'!
      I liked buying stuff from 'tat shops'

      These days 'tatting' is respectable and is called 'collecting'.
