Macrame Kits by DMC
19th August 2022
There are a lot of us who remember the 1970s. It was an iconic decade for many reasons. For some, it was the distinctive fashion featuring bold oranges, browns, greens and yellows. For others it was the music, and for still others it was the social and political upheavals that carried on from the 1960s that allowed people new ways of living and expressing themselves.
But for anyone creative, there are memorable crafts that speak to that era even more loudly than any music or political movement. One of those has to be macrame.
Macrame is a technique that uses beautifully knotted yarn to create homewares and accessories. The yarn was usually thick, resulting in delightfully chunky wall hangings, pot holders and table mats. It was all the rage during the 1970s but sadly fell out of fashion over the following decades.
We’re excited to report that macrame is back! And, it is just as satisfying and relaxing to do as ever.
We’re all looking for projects that are easy to do and look fabulous when finished. We like projects that allow us to be mindful as we work, bringing calm into our day and helping us achieve that wonderful feeling of flow. We have just added three classic macrame kits that are guaranteed to give you all of that and more.
You can choose from a classic wall hanging, a set of plant pot hangers or a circular table mat. Each kit comes with a ball of strong yarn as well as easy to follow instructions on how to create the knots and construct the finished piece. Each kit can be completed in 4 to 6 hours, bringing you calm and contentment from beginning to end.
We will admit there are some aspects of the 1970s best left back in the 70s, but macrame is not one of them. It’s back, all ready for a new generation to fall in love with and, for those of us who are old enough, to relive the joy.
