For as long as I can remember crafting has always run through my veins.
I hold such fond memories as a child, rifling through the craft cupboard with my mum and experimenting with anything from sewing, knitting and crochet to decoupage and folk art.
Inevitably though, there was a creative hiatus while I focused on other areas of my life, schooling, sports and anything else associated with growing up. Then as an adult working full time, and preparing to have a baby, macrame found its way into my life and I quickly became obsessed!!
My mind exploded with so many ideas as I experimented with different knots, materials and designs... I mean, I really did become obsessed! My new-found passion for knotting motivated me to create endlessly (and often late into the night) and to challenge myself with bigger and better designs.
A lack of available macrame resources, however, meant that the evolution of my learning was a slow process of trial and error and lots of failed attempts.
Over time, I developed my own style and techniques, set up a successful Etsy store and built up my made to order range. Macrame was bringing me so much happiness and contentment, so it wasn’t long before I made it my mission to share my love of knotting with others.
I wanted to make the process of learning macrame easier, less frustrating and more satisfying. I wanted to help beginners create something beautiful even if they were just starting out and this led me to create my first wall hanging pattern tutorial in 2016.
Fast forward a few more years and Home Vibes now hosts a large range of both video and written project tutorials and offers a variety of quality macrame and weaving materials as well as DIY kits which have been part of the macrame experience for thousands of beginners. My work is also hanging in homes all around the world, as well as in cafes, restaurants and shopping centres and has attracted the attention of major publications including Koel, frankie and Vogue magazines.
