News, Ideas and Information for Crafting with Yarn
Here’s a story about a group called Yarn Overcomers that teaches unemployed people to reduce stress.
I so love this new method of teaching people to knit and/or crochet to help relieve stress. It is very beneficial to our mental health and our social life. We get to meet new people and be inspired by their creativity and support. I hope to start a crochet class (I’m a crocheter) to help people destress from things they have to deal with in life. I think taking up a hobby such as knitting and crocheting helps people to take things slow and help them find or think through solutions to better and resolve the problems they have to deal with in life. Thanks for this post.
Loved the article. I find that crocheting makes me a lot more calmer and relaxed. I am also unemployed.
I have been crocheting since age of 17, now I’m fast approaching 60. I find it relaxes me and I get such a beautiful outcome. I too, am unemployed since January.
Last year, David beat his fundraising goal of $3500 for the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter - will you help him do it again this year?
