Awful Library Books is a blog where Michigan public librarians Mary and Holly discuss outdated books that are getting pulled from the library shelves. One of their picks is Macrame Accessories, from 1977.

    Oh my goodness, thankfully my macrame fanatic mother didn’t get ahold of that book! We had plenty of plant holders, and a very fancy hanging light and glass table.

    I have this book! I found it at a library sale years ago. It’s a real hoot. They treat macrame as a lifestyle, not a hobby.
