After I published my book, Crochet Saved My Life, I started a Ravelry group of the same for people who wanted a safe space to share their stories about craft and healing. I loved that group and the people who started connecting there. I have recently had the offer of three generous volunteers who are going to help me moderate the group so that we can revitalize it and get it going again.
Today is World Mental Health Day. I’m participating by sharing this post on how one woman uses crochet to deal with her symptoms of schizophrenia.

I was honored to have an article in this issue, not just because it’s a great magazine but because it was agreat follow-up to the article they published about me in their inaugural issue.
Issue #5 of Happily Hooked digital magazine is out now and has a new crochet health interview that I’ve done for my monthly column. This time I’ve interviewed Cynthia Maddox.
I am currently writing a 6-past guest series over on Lion Brand Yarn about crochet health.
I am currently running a crochet health survey to help us all gain more information about the benefits of crafting.
