About the Author
Fanny Zedenius is the creative mind behind the Instagram profile Createaholic (14.4K followers), which she started in late 2014 in order to share images of her crafts, home and plants. Due to popular demand Fanny opened up a web shop selling her makes and started hosting macramé workshops – all on top of her day job at the UN Women’s National Committee of Sweden. Inspired by the seemingly never-ending new ways to combine different knots, and welcoming the reflective calm that knotting brought to her world, Fanny has played an instrumental role in the modern macramé renaissance.
Lots of pretty pictures of lop-sided amateurish knotting without proper form or function. Great for people who pretend to be artists but don't actually make anything. I.e. put it on your coffee table if your guests are the type of hipster that like shabby chic and random 'vintage' things.
Thank you for a very prompt service. I was extremely satisfied.
Awesome reference book... love it! Booktopia service was excellent, tracking and invoicing... will definitely use them again
