Chinese Macrame

Judy Yeh left Taiwan as a young woman and has lived in the United States for many years. She learned Chinese macrame from her grandmother, who taught her the basic knot used to make buttons. Later, Judy learned from masters in Taiwan. Today, she creates beautiful art from 12 basic knots, including the two-coins, button, reversed swastika, and Pan-Chang knots. She has instructed apprentices and taught this ancient art in Washington, Alabama and Wisconsin.
