The art of making macrame (a French word meaning knotted lace) is an ancient way of tying notes in string to create lacy-patterned decorative and useful articles. This gratifying, easily learned technique has become almost a lost art, says author Virginia Harvey, the well-known weaver and designer. Harvey's excellent up-to-sate instruction book brings the time-honored skill very much to life and gives it a rightful place among modern hand crafts. Written in clear, graphic terms, this book traces the rich heritage of macrame, discusses tools and materials, and shows, step-by-step, how to tie the basic knots and combine them. Detailed instructions for planning and executing designs are given, together with suggestions for projects. More than 270 photographs and diagrams illustrate the text.
