Mackenzie (aka Maco)'s Profile

About

I learned to crochet from my grandmother years before I learned to read. She also taught me how to make pysanky (written eggs) in the traditional way her ancestors have always done it. When I was 9 or 10, I switched to the Ukrainian style of pysanky. About that time, I also learned calligraphy. As an adult, I picked up knitting and spinning.

I'm a Quaker, but I've noticed a lack of Quaker-related items here on Etsy, so I'm trying to fix that. It seems all that comes up in searches for Quaker stuff are birds (quaker is a bird breed), oatmeal, Quakers being lumped in with Amish, and marriage certificates.

I'm also a history nerd of the medievalist/SCA variety, so medieval & historical calligraphy have left an impression. For my luceted cords, I use a lucet from the Spanish Peacock http://spanishpeacock.etsy.com

When not making physical items, I make software.

Oh, and Maco is the name I tend to go by, if you're wondering where the shop name came from :)
