Jan Stawasz RIP

Today it is a sad day  in the tatting world as we have learnt that Jan Stawasz has died.  His funeral was today at the Old Cemetery Chapel in Slupsk in Poland.  His tatting adventures started in 1992 after a car accident.   He had several patterns published in the German Magazine "Anna",  which he gave me the magazine numbers so I could find his patterns in my copies of Anna.
The picture above is from his second book which Wendy and I did a tat along back in the summer.  I am so pleased I managed to buy a copy of this book.
 They were going to republished his first book about now,  I hope they do republished it as if it is half as good as his second then it will be worth buying.
His designs and patterns are world famous and the tatting world has lost a wonderful man.   I hope he is tatting with the angels but memory will live on in the tatting world.
I send my condolences to the family and friends of this great tatter.



  1. may he tat along in peace... that is a beautiful bowl of flowers

  2. Oh that's sad. I didn't know till I read your post. I just purchased his book a bout a month ago. Seems everyone was making the flowers in the vase.

  3. I am saddened and shocked to hear of his passing. It must have been sudden as it was only a month ago I learned that his first book was o be republished and had emailed him to order a copy. I am new to tatting but was drawn to his impeccable work. So sad, he was relatively young too. I join you in offering my condolences to his family, he and his work will be missed.

  4. It is a shock to read this, and I thank you for the information. His story is amazing and he contributed so much to tatting design in a very short time. It is indeed a sad loss.

  5. Another Master Tatter lost to us, and tatting with the angels. He had marvelous designs.
