Cassandra's Review- This book took me back to my sunday school days and learning just the basics of this craft. I had no idea how many ways you can macrame. The book has 35 ideas that range from basic to intricate. This is a craft that my whole family would enjoy as it is easy to do and does not cost a lot of money.
