Patchwork Quilted Lace Bobbin Tatting Shuttle
Dave hand crafted this 2 1/2 inch lace bobbin tatting shuttle out of a patchwork of woods including birdseye maple, lace wood and granadillo. It has a #14 steel picot hook inset in the nose. The bobbin is a common plastic Singer bobbin available in a 4 pack at Walmart or most other sewing suppliers. The brass bobbin axle has a bushing that rides against the bobbin providing drag to prevent freewheeling. You can back off the screw to adjust the drag on the bobbin. It is initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.
