104 year old Grace is a crochet member of a yarnbombing group!
E. shares her story about how she experienced PTSD after a stalking incident at her home and work and how crochet and CBT together have helped her to get through the worst of it.
I’m loving the #howilearnedcrochet stories that are being shared through Instagram. It’s always so fun to learn more about the people who are doing great crochet and how they came to start doing it. I wanted to share some of those stories here today but of course you can check the IG hashtag to read them all.
You may or may not know that I write a regular column for Interweave Crochet magazine. It’s called Everyday Crochet and it shares articles that I write based on interviews with people who share their experiences of the craft. In addition to the regular seasonal issues, Interweave has special issues, including Crochetscene, which has just come out for 2015. In this issue I’ve shared my article about Helen Wyatt.
Back in April I rounded up 20+ crochet interviews and they were a big hit. I’ve been keeping track of the new ones that bloggers are putting out there and wanted to give you a fresh new roundup with another 14 new crochet interviews.
I always like crochet stories about regular people who crochet. (I write my own “Everyday Crocheter column for Interweave’s Crochet print magazine.) Back in April, I rounded up 11 stories of interesting people who crochet. I’ve got another eleven links for you today.
The newest issue of Happily Hooked digital crochet magazine (#15) includes my article about Rebecca Monroe and how crochet has helped her.
