A little on Norma Benporath (1900 - 1998) is provided by the Powerhouse Museum.
As usually happened for scanned documents converted to text, there are bound to be errors when captured by the OCRs. A number of tatters in InTatters are editing the text for the patterns and correcting the errors. On my part, I have decided to test-tat the patterns after they are edited.
The first one that I am working on is Tatting Designs for Busy People, edited by Judy. There are two patterns published in this article, a small lace mat and a serviette ring. I started with the lace mat, which has four rounds. The lace mat is turning out quite nicely after two rounds.
