Crochet Health

littlecosythings crochet craftastherapy

Little Cosy Things recapped her Craft as Therapy moderator experience. “I began my week by introducing myself to the community and sharing a little bit about my infertility journey, my diagnosis of PCOS and endometrosis, and how crochet has become my therapy with coping with the loss and emotional stress. I was flooded with support, well wishes, and stories from other crafters who not only are on their own journey of infertility, but who have also overcome their struggle and welcomed little miracles of their own. Truly inspirational, and such courage to share too.”

brown owls

@meetmeatmikes shared a post about the Brown Owls, a grown-up crafty version of The Brownies, and how crafting together was healing in so many ways, writing in part: “Meetings were full of learning and happy chatter. Whatever we knew, we shared, figuring that the benefits of helping each other out were so delightful that notions of trade secrets or competitive advantage should most definitely be completely ignored. Helping one another felt good.”
