TESTIMONIAL: "It was a pleasure to spend this evening with this creative soul learning the art of Macrame. I hesitated to bring my girlfriend thinking it was a little outside the male comfort zone, I couldn't have been more wrong. Apparently the men get a kick out of tying knots too! So If your short on a partner (or cant coax them along) get a group of girls together, take a break from going on the drink and learn something new!" - Michael.
