Macrame Revivals

Macrame  experienced a revival in the 60's and is perhaps experiencing another one now. Yesterday I found a huge half-worked wall hanging which I am going to give to a friend who has talked about doing macrame. I love the rich texture and the potential in all that string!
I have recently bought a delightful book called Creating Body Coverings by Jean Ray Laury and Joyce Aiken. Published in the early 70s it is a sometimes scary reminder of the brave crafters from that era!

Style Eye and Designbird give a lovely up to date perspective on this age old craft!
