Marge Braley joined our Bangor store in September of 2023 with her beautiful macrame work, creating plant hangers, wall hangings and some super cute gnomes! Her work is always a joy to see, and brings a touch of nostalgia and whimsy to our stores! (Call me biased because she's my mom, but I love every single piece she brings in!)
I started as a teen, making greeting cards with my mom's tatted flowers. I then progressed to Christmas ornaments made from chicken eggs- some of which actually still exist! Then life intervened and for the next several decades I crafted sporadically, mostly to keep my sanity during some tough times. When my kids came along, I crafted with them and for them, and now that they are grown, I am on to the grands. I still try to make each of them an ornament during the winter holidays, which often leads to trying a new craft!
You can find macrame from Heart to Heart in our Bangor and Gorham locations!
