The newest issue of Happily Hooked digital crochet magazine (#15) includes my article about Rebecca Monroe and how crochet has helped her.
I have been deeply impacted this morning by the news that Marinke (Wink) of A Creative Being succumbed to suicide. (See full post here.) And I feel like I need to do something. After re-reading her story in Crochet Saved My Life, mulling it over during meditative crochet and mindful walking, I’ve come up with the project. It’s called #MandalasForMarinke.
If you’ve read my book, Crochet Saved My Life, then you’ve been introduced to Aurore who has used crochet to help her cope with auditory hallucinations and other symptoms of schizophrenia. Aurore recently got a new job and connected with me for an update that I wanted to share with you here today.
I’ve just received my copy of Interweave Crochet Summer 2015, which is where I write my Everyday Crocheter column. In this issue, I share what I learned from my interview with Jennifer Spears. She’s a self-taught geek-loving crocheter who uses crochet for relaxation and healing.
I recently rounded up 80+ crochet health articles that I’ve written in the past few years. But here are some more recent crochet health articles and news about how crochet heals.
The new issue of Happily Hooked Magazine, issue #14, is now out and includes my interview with Sheila Z about how crochet has helped her through grief. Read the whole interview by getting Happily Hooked online.
Inspired by reading Love in Every Stitch, I decided to go through my archives and review all of the articles I’ve written over the years about how crochet has helped people. Of course, I love the personal stories the most but I like anytime I can share about the mental and physical health benefits of crochet. Then I got to wondering – why haven’t I collected all of these articles in one place? Well, I ask that no longer – here is the archive of crochet health stories to date.
