Marvelous Macrame

Back in the hippie-days of the 1970s and ’80s, making macramé crafts was hugely popular. People made macramé swings, plant-pot holders, window coverings and hanging shelf units. It was an inexpensive, yet creative decorating medium. Personally, I enjoyed learning to tie the knots more than making any particular craft.

Were you a member of the macramé generation or have you taken up the craft recently? In either case, tell us about the most outlandish macramé project you ever completed. Post your story in the comments section, below.
