About the Author

Nghi Ho is a successful self-taught Macramé artist and content creator. As a kid, she was amazed by how using your hands and a bit of creativity one could create something beautiful. One of her fondest memories as a child is making lanterns for the Mid-Autumn festival.

Nghi followed her passion and received her bachelor's degree in Fashion Design. After graduating, she got a job as a graphic designer. She then decided to become a freelancer, in order to have more artistic freedom, and to be able to choose projects she was really passionate about. After a while Nghi began to show interest in other types of digital businesses. She's self-taught in basic coding/programming, recording/editing content, image compositions, web development, and building a social media presence.

It took Nghi a while to learn the art of Macramé. And during that time, at some point, she got frustrated with some of the options available to do so. It was then, when she decided to give it a try and began creating her own content. She has built herself a presence in the online Macramé community, and uses platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok to inspire others to take on Macramé. She creates easy to follow tutorials with the goal to spark people's creativity as well as artistic self-expression. Apart from creating content and managing her social media channels, Nghi has developed her own brand of Macramé supplies, Miss Knottie Macrame. Her online store has allowed people from all over the world to get everything they need to start tying knots.




Reviews

"Ho, a self-taught macramé artist, content creator, and founder of the online supply store Miss Knottie Macramé, has created a wonderful resource for both seasoned artists and readers new to this craft. With a list of commonly used materials, and why and when to use them, this book answers questions many beginning crafters often ask. It offers detailed steps with accompanying photos that guide crafters through learning a tremendous variety of knots. The book's projects and designs, suitable for all skill levels, include items that can be worn or used for decoration. There are helpful step-by-step instructions for creating them, plus clear photos. The author wanted to provide the help that she couldn't find during her early years of learning macramé, and she succeeds. VERDICT: A wonderful resource for beginning and advanced macramé artists. Ideal for well-circulating DIY craft collections."
