With the help of her expert guidance, you can create more than 30 ropework projects that will add a nautical touch to your boat, RV, camp, or home.

Don’t worry if you have never worked with rope in this way before--Barbara will take you step-by-step through the process, from choosing and measuring materials to putting the final touches on your nautical project. Projects are suitable for scout troops or afterschool activities as well!
