Do you Stitch Away Stress and Unwind with crochet and knitting?
When was the last time you picked up your current project after a long hard day? I’m guessing the answer to this question was sometime this week. We all have so many stressors in life and getting through them means we need to have something we can go to that melts them all away. Sometimes we don’t even realizing we stitch away stress! For me, this is crochet and knitting – “stitch time” I call it and it is an absolute must.
April is stress awareness month and the Craft Yarn Council is celebrating the Stitch Away Stress movement once again. I feel so compelled to share the health benefits of knit and crochet that I’ve aligned April’s podcast topics around it! Crochet has the power to change our life, I strongly believe that because it has changed my life in so many ways. Let’s pass that along – give someone else the gift of crochet this month.
I’m joined by, Sarah, of the Craft Yarn Council to share the details of the Stitch Away Stress movement, the research that went into it and how you can get involved.
- About Sarah and her role at the Craft Yarn Council.
- When Stitch Away Stress began and why.
- Interesting facts and findings from real people who crochet to de-stress.
- How to get involved with the movement – bloggers, makers and hobbyists!
- Why it’s so important to pass along our craft.
