Macrame tutorials: How to macrame with jewelry designer Coco Paniora Salinas of Rumi Sumaq

Macrame Tutorials: Answers to Your Most Frequently Asked Questions

Share this Post

During the process of collecting feedback by email about our upcoming macrame tutorials, we received many questions from interested students. And though we responded to every email (or will soon respond), we would also like to publicly address the questions here on the blog. Just in case you are wondering the same things too.

We greatly appreciate your trust and wish to remain as open as possible in this new and exciting macrame tutorials project.

So here goes, our answers to your most frequently asked questions…

The short answer is very soon!

That said, we know we owe you an apology. We are sorry that the macramé tutorials have taken longer than expected to get up and running. As you may know, we make our living from Coco’s jewelry by traveling every weekend to exhibit at juried art shows across the United States.

The truth is we tried really hard to squeeze in creating video tutorials in between exhibiting at art shows. But most weeks we barely found the time to pay some bills and do our laundry before heading out to the next art show. Not to mention, Coco has to keep up with creating new jewelry for inventory to sell.

Excuses aside, we are sorry we’ve kept you waiting for the tutorials. We know we let you down and we want to make it up to you by making some big changes in our business this year.

It is our intention to spend less time on the road at art shows and more time teaching macramé.

We are determined to help empower you to feel confident in your knotting skills so that you may share your fiber art with others. So if that means trading in many miles on the art show circuit for the video camera, then so be it. We are happy to serve.

So, again, the macrame tutorials are coming very, very soon! We promise.

Look for an email announcing our launch date very soon. But wait, are you on our tutorials email list? If not, be sure to sign up now…

  1. I really am intrigue with your designs, I’m impress that you can create something as beautiful as these necklaces. Did you have to draw your designs out, like a blueprint, it’s simply amazing. I’m from Hawaii and there’s a lot of seashell on our beaches, and sea glass as well. I would like to learn something simple or attempt to do one of your designs and incorporate it with seashells and sea glass. I’m sure there is some that others have made using seashells etc. But yours really caught my interest, Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful creation and when you do post your tutorial I would appreciate if you could email me.

      Hi Cheryle,
      Thanks very much for your kind words. In answer to your question, yes, I sometimes draw out my designs first. But they don’t always turn out as expected. Macrame is a finicky art form and it is difficult to plan out how the cords will relate to one another once I start knotting the design I had envisioned. More often than not, I need to adapt my designs as I go along. Thanks for your interest in the macrame tutorials. We’ve released 2 courses so far: one on stone wrapping and another on a macrame bracelet with stones. Check your email for news from us and you should see it there. Thanks again for taking the time to write us.
      Love and light,
