Celebrating the Modern Macramé Mamas

Happy Mother's Day, makers! However you are celebrating Mother's Day, we wish you an easeful and sweet Sunday. If you've been following Modern Macramé for some time, you know that our founder, Emily Katz, just became a mama herself!

We've been loving all of the pictures of Emily's little girl, Palomino - especially this family shot by Sommessa Photography. With all the baby and mama love in the air, our team decided to stroll down memory lane and pull out some baby pictures with our moms! 

Our Operations Manager, Nadya and her mom at the Kenai Beach in Alaska flying a kite together. For Mother's Day, Nadya gave her wellness-loving mom the macramé yoga mat sling. Find the pattern here to make your mom one!

Our Pattern Developer, Elspeth, holding a little paper chain she crafted with her mom. Elspeth learned to knit from her mom at the young age of three! For Mother's Day, Elspeth is giving her mom a crochet granny square blanket. Follow Elspeth's step by step tutorial on how to make your own here. 

Here's our Fulfillment and Warehouse Lead, Courtney, on her first ride in the sidecar with her mom and her big sis, 1982. Courtney's mom loves the color purple, so this Mother's Day, Courtney gave her a wall hanging she knotted up with our 5mm rope in Lavender and Violet. 

Our Marketing and Social Manager, Beth, with her mom by the ocean in Sea Isle City, NJ, 1997. Beth's mom is an avid macramé artist herself and has recently been crafting beautiful mandala wreaths using our 100% bamboo string and dried flowers, so Beth gave her a new spool! 

Our Retail Associate, Taylor, with her mom (left) at the Sears Photo Studio at the mall when Taylor was three. This year, Taylor is giving her mom the Who Loves the Sun Wall Hanging Kit for her new home. On the right, Taylor is with her step mom, Cassie, peeking out a barn window on their family farm. Taylor is making Cassie a set of crochet trivets for Mother's Day! Make your own trivets with our DIY pattern here.
