In case you haven't heard, I'm hosting the world's first KnotAlong starting this Friday, August 21, 2015. I'm going to be demonstrating how to make several macrame knots that I use in my jewelry pieces, including Larks Head, Double Half Hitch and Square Knots. In the process of learning those knots, I'm going to teach you how to make this micro macrame pendant:
Sounds like fun, right?! And the best part? It's free! That's right - I'm not charging a thing for the class. Okay, there might be a cost if you need to buy some of the materials involved, but there aren't too many. If you haven't gathered them up yet, you can find the list here, along with a little video showing all of them and some sources. You might have most of the thing you need laying around if you dabble in DIY. Or maybe you can borrow them from Great Aunt Martha if she belongs to the sewing club down at the Senior Center (what? could happen!).
I'll be putting the video up on Friday morning. It's finished and ready to go and I'm telling you, it's really detailed! I will show you every single step from cutting the cord to adding a dab of glue at the very end. I demonstrate every knot - more than once! You'll be able to pause it and go back if you need to see something again. You'll even be able to refer back to it later if you get stuck on your next project.
I've created a Facebook event page where we can interact, too. You can post photos if you really muck something up and need help. Or you can ask questions if you're too embarrassed to post a picture. Either way, I'll be there to help out.
Are you ready?
