Since retiring Cherie has taken up making macramé the ancient form of textile production using knotting techniques rather than weaving.
One of the earliest recorded uses of macramé-
Macramé was most popular in the Victorian era when it adorned most homes in items
such as tablecloths, bedspreads and curtains. Sailors made macramé objects and sold
or bartered them when they landed, spreading the art to China and the New World.
Macramé's popularity faded, but resurged in the 1970s for making wall hangings, clothing accessories, small jean shorts, bedspreads, tablecloths, draperies, plant hangers and other furnishings while Macramé jewelry became popular in America.
Cherie’s originally started by making plant hangers for home, it then became a hobby after which she started showing and selling her products at Craft Fairs around Brighton, receiving many complementary comments for the quality and design of her products.
Below are pictures of some of her creations.
