Macramé is a fibre medium that has been around for centuries, and yet there are still revolutionary ways to modernize and elevate the knots. In this book, fibre artist Terri Watson shares her new school approach to creating contemporary knotted macramé canvases, using just a few simple knots. Terri has been shaking up fibre traditions for years with her vertical clove hitch knot tapestries, choosing to explore an unprecedented style, and shaping an emergent fibre phenomenon. If you have ever wanted to learn tips and tricks from one of the pioneers of this style, look no further! In this book, Terri candidly shares many of her tried, true, and top secret (shhhh!) knotting techniques: including how to create vertical clove hitch knot fibre art that is as polished on the back as it is on the front; how to finish a piece using her signature streamlined scroll finish; how to incorporate different colours to create beautiful knotted tapestries. By following the step-by-step instructions in this book, you too can learn to design and create your own macramé ‘canvas' patterns like a pro! This book features ten projects that Terri will walk you through start to finish, followed by an extensive library of over 100 patterns and designs that you can use to create a wide variety of your own projects — wall art, plant hangers, pot covers, garlands, table mats, and even show-stopping denim jacket panels that will turn your threads into walking works of art. Consider this book a manual that will help you unlock your knotting potential, and create fibre artworks that even your mother-in-law will enjoy.
Hello and thank you for being here! This entire book has been written in the room where I used to sleep as a little girl, in the very house where my grandma taught me to tie macramé knots as an eight-year-old.

A powerful debut novel, praised by The New York Times, Bustle, and Hypable, that pulses with humor and empathy as it explores the heart's capacity for forgiveness.... Zadie Anson and Emma Colley have been best friends since their early twenties, when they first began navigating serious romantic relationships amid the intensity of medical school. Now they're happily married wives and mothers with successful careers--Zadie as a pediatric cardiologist and Emma as a trauma surgeon. Their lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, are chaotic but fulfilling, until the return of a former colleague unearths a secret one of them has been harboring for years. As chief resident, Nick Xenokostas was the center of Zadie's life--both professionally and personally--throughout a tragic chain of events during her third year of medical school that she has long since put behind her. Nick's unexpected reappearance at a time of new professional crisis shocks both women into a deeper look at the difficult choices they made at the beginning of their careers. As it becomes evident that Emma must have known more than she revealed about circumstances that nearly derailed both their lives, Zadie starts to question everything she thought she knew about her closest friend.
In addition to his surgical practice, Dr. Xenokostas is an ardent skier, golfer, and macramé artist. (Wait. What? ... “Hello! Hello, big kids!” The boys were tangled in a logjam at the SUV's door. “Hustle up, buttercups!” I called.
