About Us!

Hello friend! My name is Lindsey and I am the owner and face behind Why Knot.  I live (and have always lived) in Central PA in the Harrisburg area.  I've been doing macrame since 2020 when I picked it up as a hobby during the pandemic. I've enjoyed it so much, I made it into a living for myself and my family.  I am a coffee fiend and plant addict, a sucker for a good sunset and will take you up on a hike ANY time.  Add some beach and or dogs into the mix and now we're really talking! 

Macrame is extremely therapeutic and it has helped me through a really tough time in my life, I take every chance to share my art with others!  This creative business brings so much joy into my life and I'm so happy you're here with me.  My macrame journey began during COVID.  I'd accumulated 1 too many plants and was running out of space to put them -- so I recounted my mom and grandma's home decor, they had plants hanging everywhere!  It must run in the family.  I tied my way through all of the YouTube tutorials and started to create my own pieces, I learned that I might actually be pretty good at this knotting thing.  After some peer pressure from friends and family, Why Knot was born. 

I couldn't have imagined 2 years ago where I would be today, simply because I started creating knots.  Now, just two years after learning to create macrame art, I am selling wholesale & consignment with retail stores in the Harrisburg PA area and around the country (stay tuned for my stockist guide!), I participate in local makers markets and teach macrame workshops.  I am so thankful for this creative outlet and all of you for your generosity and support of my family! 

Thanks so much for reading, xx
