macramecollective.com, a place for people who want to learn more about the fine art of macrame.
This is Macrame
If your idea of macrame is 1970s plant holders, that idea is about to change.
All of the work shown on this site comes down to three simple knots.
Macrame is more than jute these days.
Macrame is more than craft.view calendar
Here are some links that wake up my macrame muse.
This is not a "how to macrame" site. But if you are anything like me, I love to look at tutorials and it's often where I find answers to design problems.
If you have a link you'd like to share, contact me.
Time to get lost in links...enjoy!

Meet the artists who are writing for Macrame Collective.
Contact me with your ideas if you would like to be a contributor.
Contributor Statement: "I'm convinced there are many talented artists in Latin America who should be recognized for their art. That's why I believe it's important that I contribute to the Macrame Collective and spread the word!"
"I learned knotting techniques with thick cord when I was in middle school. I'm so impassioned that once, I stumbled upon a fabulous micro-macrame book whose bracelets were so beautiful that I started in my own little projects with whatever kind of cord I could scavenge from around the house. Beads and other materials add the finishing touch to my projects."
"My latest project is to teach others macrame techniques that I believe are slowly becoming obsolete. I'm determined to learn through research and investigation of other artists' artwork, both current and historical."
