    hi everyone :)

    so i'm gonna have a lot of spare time this summer and was thinking of how i could take up a new interest.

    i'm thinking along the lines of macrame and hemp weaving and beading. any tips on how to get started?

    thanks a bunch :)

    ... um, visit a craft store? there's supplies and often instruction books... if not, google instructions.

    The main thing you need first is the materials. Reading is one thing but if you want to practise, it is good to have these to hand.
    You have hemp cord, wax cotton cord, rat tail etc take your pick You will need T pins and a cushion depending on what you are making. Glue, of course. Might want to buy some charms and beads... maybe

    Lots of handmade sites if you want to sell - MISI, Etsy, Folksy etc
