Who knew there was a better way to macrame than safety pinning the project to the leg of your jeans? I had stopped doing macrame because the arthritis in my hands and shoulders made it too difficult to reach and control the wire. Using the board, after Kristen's demonstration, has me doing macrame again.

Macrame is likely derived from Arabic or Turkish words describing fringes and weaving techniques. It is a form of crafting textiles using knots - rather than knitting, crocheting or weaving.
Early macrame was used as a decorative fringe. It later fell into favor with sailors and was used for hammocks, fringe work on railing and bells and decorative finishes to knife handles and bottles. Macrame exploded in popularity during the 1970s and was used for wall hangings, jewelry, and clothing.
On into the 21st century, we have found macrame especially fun to use with Soft Flex Wire. Explore jewelry making with our colored wire and a macrame board!
I saw someone using this and had to have it. I'm glad I did. It's great. Love it.
The item was more than expected. But even better was the great employee who helped me straighten out the order I had made a mistake on. I will order again.
I've been making (and selling) wrap bracelets for years. Now I finally have a way to hold them in place so the creation goes quicker - wish I'd thought of this sooner.
