    does anybody macrame'?

    I used to love to make plant hangers but can't find my book and it must not be very popular any more because there aren't that many books out there. does anybody have any patterns to give or sell?

    Not only that, no one at michaels knew what macrame was, even home depot and lows had no cord.

    wellI found cord, only one size at Hobby Lobby but no books! I guess I'll just do some free style but I really like to know what it's supposed to look like!

    I used to do macrame but don't know if I would be able to do it without a refresher course. I've moved a couple of times and don't know where my books and patterns went to. Have you used google to find information?

    I use to make macrame plant hangers about 25 yrs ago. I had a great big roll of jute cord my MI gave me, I donated to GW or SA. I also had tons of rings etc. I use to do lots of crafts but now I just make quilts.

    If I still had them I would send them to you-I had quite a few booklets and patterns, macrame cord spools in all colors, a huge amount of jute, wooden beds, rings, etc. Don't know why I kept it so long, but finally dropped it all off at Goodwill a couple years ago.
    I have made the plant hangers-single double and triple pot ones. I have made poodle heads, frogs, and I once made a very large lion head. That was in the late 70's. All took a back seat to quilting.
