Repurpose scraps of fabric from well-loved clothes, linens, or textile projects to create no waste macramé ornaments.
Using only cinnamon sticks and the square knot, you’ll create two different ornaments made of recycled fibers. Once you have learned this versatile macramé knot, you’ll be able to dream up just about any holiday decor project with household scraps and a little creativity.

Philadelphia-based fiber artist Sam Tower (she/her) of Macrame by Monday uses macramé knotting to create earthy decor and wall art, functional and charming home goods, and intentionally designed baby toys. Sam’s small batch and custom-created pieces are knotted by hand in her home studio using consciously-sourced materials that have been recycled or purchased from other small businesses. Sam takes a low-waste approach to making by using repurposed materials, incorporating scraps, and eliminating single use plastics as much as possible. She enjoys sharing her fiber art practice with communities of crafters, makers, dyers, fabricators, plant lovers, and families. Her work often includes vintage and organic materials such as reclaimed wood, ceramic beads, foraged driftwood, and other fibers like recycled silk, jute, and yarn. Made with cotton cord, beechwood rings, and colorful ribbons, her baby toys are designed to support the development of motor skills and inspire play in little ones. When creating macramé art, Sam is inspired by the natural world, her cultural heritage, and the treasures she finds while antiquing.
This class is part of our Scrap Week, which highlights local artists and businesses that turn ‘trash’ into treasure. Events in this celebration of scraps include:
