Learn Macramé with Friends
So you want to learn macramé. This ancient art has been around a long time, originating from the Middle East centuries ago. It’s likely that the first intent was to make use of the loose ends on woven fabrics. Artistic knots may have even kept weaving material together. Over time, this decorative appearance spread through northern Africa and through Southern Europe. In the late 1600’s macramé reached the heights of England, where Queen Mary passed this craft on to the ladies of her inner circle. More recently in the US. Macramé was a perfect fit for the loose and breezy lifestyle of the 1970’s. Now, with trend-setters bringing the magic of the 70’s back, a macramé revival is underway. Today you can join us at The Craft Revolt to keep the groove moving.
