I have a whole lot of 2015 crochet health interviews planned for this blog but in the meantime, here’s what was featured in the past year.
Happy Thanksgiving! Every year on this day I do a post about why I’m thankful for crochet. It’s important to me to do this because crochet saved my life and it continues keeping me sane, stable, and happy as well as connected to an amazing online and offline crafting community.
One of the things that I’m giving thanks for this year is that so many wonderful people have supported me in my journey with crocheting through depression. In return, I’m offering 40% off on my book, Crochet Saved My Life, through Christmas.
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.
If you think that you might be interested in sharing how crochet has helped you, please sign up for this new newsletter here.
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.
