April is National Stress Awareness Month and in keeping with this, the Craft Yarn Council (CYC) is running the “Stitch Away Stress” campaign. They have broken the month down into 4 themes: Mind, Body, Spirit; Exercising the Mind; Community; and Inspirations Ability to Heal.
This week the focus is community and how knitting and crocheting builds relationships. These communities might be in the online world through Ravelry, Facebook, or other social media or out in the physical world at guilds or informal gatherings. Whatever your style and opportunity to connect, it is no secret that crafters create strong bonds.
