For macrame beginners who may have stumbled upon this blog by chance, welcome! I am writing this post in honor of your courage to delve into the world of knotting despite its lack of popularity. Only a small population around the world still practice macrame. Most of these people are older and mature, and may have learned macrame during its heyday in the seventies.
Now the art of knotting may be coming back because of the macrame jewelry that has been making the rounds in fashion. The same decorative macrame is seen in fashionable dresses, handbags, hats and belts in 2010 Spring collections.
