Macrame Forever!

Practical Macrame
Andes
1971

Submitter: I work in a public library, and I have to say that I’d never heard of macrame prior to retrieving this book for a patron. I asked my mother, who graduated from college in the late ’70s, and she remembered it vaguely. The book itself is showing its age – it was down in the basement, and the bottom of the cover has worn away to reveal the cardboard.

Holly: Never heard of macrame? This must have been quite a shock for you, then! Behold, dear readers. This is one of the best macrame books I’ve seen.

Yes, I have Brady Bunch issues.  I just can’t help myself. In this episode, Mike is elected president of the PTA.  Note the front cover calls it PTA prexy.  (What is a “prexy”? Is it this? or this? ) All sorts of shenanigans happen to our intrepid family as Mike assumes the new role of community leader. The PTA is not just for the ladies, men need to participate too!
