Hemp Macramé Book -Triple A Review

Hemp Macramé Book Review: "Hemp Macramé Book Review

I have more than a few reasons to be nostalgic about my macramé days when I was working on that massive plant hanger in Mrs. Nagel’s arts and crafts class. I miss a lot of things from back then. However, now that I’ve renewed my interest in macramé, I especially miss my old macramé books. So, I’ve been on the look out for replacements. With the help of Soft Flex ®, I’ve found a nice book which is affordably priced ($6.95 U.S) called Hemp Jewelry by Marty Hite.

At 16 pages, this little book is packed with information. The front cover starts out by describing the supplies - hemp and beads - you will need for the 25 projects listed. Then a few basics are explained including some knot directions, supplies needed, and how to start a projects. The back cover also provides information on using jump rings and shows some clasp variations.

The rest of the book is dedicated to a variety of macramé jewelry projects and more knot instructions. I found the knot instructions to be pretty good. They aren’t fabulous, but after trying to do this for my own Knot Library, I know how difficult this can be to explain. If you have previous macramé experience, you should be able to follow the knot instructions with no problem. If you are a novice, it might take a little more tim"

Sounds like a great book!!! Thanks for the recommendation - little books often pack a punch! Carolyne :)
