This is a unbelievably nice touch if you have every tried to read a pattern s instructions while your hands are full of your in progress project. As an avid needleworker myself my personal experience prompted my choice of spiral binding for it s ease-of-use alone. I bet you ll love it too! Our customers say: beautiful patterns love it received immediately great seller AAAAA+++++ This HISTORIC item contains approximately 85 photos and line drawings of wondrous macram? lace patterns with clear instructions, designs and fundamentals for creating delicately beautiful, dainty lace or substantial and ornate accessories and household soft furnishings! An excerpt: Macrame does not need any introduction as work, but it does need introduction to people. It is about twenty-five years since the last revival of this most fascinating handiwork. If search is made for the origin of Macrame, its claims of great antiquity can be substantiated. The name, as we have it, is of Arabic origin, and the work in the heavier grades has been used, lavishly, to decorate and finish the edges of trappings, tents, etc. The Italians first adapted its use to finer threads, the making of laces and fine fringes. Uses of Macram? Many useful articles can be made in Macram? work, such as table and mantel borders, brackets, fringes for household linen and towels, nightdress cases, handkerchief sachets, wall pockets, tidies, work-bags, shopping-baskets, cosies, insertions for antimacassars, and fringes for dress-trimmings. Now I am certain the creative fiber and thread artists out there can visualize and conceive many, many creative uses for this art in our modern-day world way beyond the cultural confines of those when this item was created. I could see this art being useful with curtain and clothing embellishments, wall hangings, bed and bath linens, table covers and runners, baby items and gifts galore for the quickly upcoming holiday season! I guess I am a product of the times as I never thought of macram? beyond the plant and wall hangings of the 70 s which were made with stout cords, heavy twines and wooden beads. Now this antique information has changed my perspective in that the items made are constructed of our equivalent of fine to coarse crochet weight types of threads but of linen, not cotton. I imagine when I begin to play with this I will use some of my size G and up vintage and antique silk threads. I might even get to the point where I will experiment with antique glass seed beads in the project just because I could
:^) There is a great deal more latitude with this fiber art then I ever imagined!
