Macramé Historic Book Collection on CD

Price: $14.97     SKU: B513     Qty:

When most people think about Macramé, the thought that probably comes to mind is hanging baskets for plants. But Macramé is much more. It is a complete art form centered around working with knots to create intricate and beautiful patterns. This collection of seven historic books explore the ancient art of Macramé and teach you the many types of knots and designs you can make at home with very little equipment needed. In fact, with a ball of twine and a few things you probably already have lying around the house, you can master the materials in these volumes and begin creating your own beautiful Macramé creations.
