Can you macrame sitting down?
You can sit on the floor, cozy up on the sofa, or stand, but your tools will help you to make macramé and still be comfortable!
How do you hang a heavy macrame?
Cut a length of clothesline about twice the length of the wooden dowel. Tie each end of the clothesline to the ends of the dowel and secure them with a double knot. Cut off any excess clothesline with scissors and use a nail to hang up your macrame by the extra cord.

Why it is called macrame?
The word macramé is derived from the Arabic macramia (مكرمية), believed to mean “striped towel”, “ornamental fringe” or “embroidered veil”. Another school of thought indicates that it comes from Turkish makrama, “napkin” or “towel”.
