Since then, I have written a book, taught hundreds of macrame workshops at events, private venues and large companies like Facebook. I run two successful online macrame courses and a membership. In September 2020, I launched my first curated group program for macrame makers that want to turn their macrame passion into a profitable business.
I have been featured in the Sunday Telegraph, Mollie Makes magazines, Metro, Good Housekeeping, In the Moment, Hobby Craft blog as well as the UK TV Show, Kirstie's Handmade Christmas.
I truly believe macrame can transform people’s lives, as it did for me and many of my students. I hope you can find what you are looking for here. Happy knotting and thank you for dropping by.
My mission is to share my macrame knowledge with others. Since teaching macrame I have seen the benefits this craft has had on so many women. Macrame has given confidence, creativity, identity, purpose, joy, and has helped with mental health, isolation, health, and chronic illnesses.
I also work with women that have a macrame business and are eager to turn their passion into a profitable business. Before I was a macrame artist, I was an interior designer. In 2016 I discovered macrame by chance and from that very first knot, I got addicted. I wasn’t in a happy place. Like many people, I was living in London, stuck in a 9-5 job that was destroying my soul. I hardly saw my daughter and my creative spirit was screaming for attention. I knew I had to change something but I just couldn’t figure out what.
Then I discovered macrame and a new world opened up. Finally, I could express my creativity again just the way I wanted it. I opened a blog called TwoMe which means: TWO hours for ME a day. I embarked on this challenge to learn 12 crafts in 12 months and I documented my creative journey on the blog and my Instagram account.
Six months into the blog, I got asked to run a macrame workshop that sold out and that gave me the idea to start a side hustle. One year after that we relocated from London to the countryside and I took the leap to quit my
career and work full time on my macrame business.
It's true! I wrote a book and it's all about macrame! It's called "Macrame for the Modern Home" and you can get a signed copy at the link below!
"The feeling was amazing when I stood back proudly looking at my wall hanging thinking ‘I made that!’ Not only has there been incredible community spirit, but it has been wonderful to see everyone’s individual styles so actively encouraged! I couldn’t recommend this course more highly."
"I attended a macrame wall hanging workshop in London and really enjoyed every minute. Isabella is a wonderful, gentle teacher and so incredibly patient and knowledgeable about this intricate craft. I am looking forward to creating a much larger one soon and will be following her tutorials with a keen eye. Thank you Isabella."
