Crochet saved my life : the mental and physical health benefits of crochet by Kathryn Vercillo( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crochet saves lives. It saved mine. In the worst throes of depression I found myself sobbing on the bathroom floor, the tip of a kitchen knife pointed into my wrist. I was aching to break the flesh and bring the pain to an end. Through sheer force of will, I pried my own desperate hands open and replaced the knife with a crochet hook. Then I crocheted to save my life. In this book, you will get to know me through my story of depression and healing. And you will get to know other women as well. You will meet Aurore who crochets to stay in touch with reality as she deals with ongoing psychiatric hallucinations. You will meet Laurie who made a new life with crochet after years of a life filled with abuse. You will meet Tammy whose crochet helps her with the ups and downs of living with Chronic Lyme Disease. You will meet Liza who crochets through the anxiety of having temporary bouts of blindness caused by an undiagnosed health condition. The two dozen women whose stories are shared in this book are the women who hook to heal. We are not alone. Studies shows that crocheters are numerous; research and anecdotal evidence show that people of all ages, from all walks of life, with all types of health conditions may find healing through their hooks and yarn

Mandalas for Marinke : a collaborative crochet art project to raise awareness about depression, suicide and th ehealing power of crafting by Kathryn Vercillo( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"After the death by suicide of crochet designer Marinke Slump, the online crochet community came together to create the Mandalas for Marinke project. This was a response to her death designed to honor and share the legacy of her work as well as to raise awareness about depression and suicide. This book is a sampling of that project, a curated compilation of the beautiful crochet mandalas handcrafted by more than 300 designers around the world. It shares snippets of their stories - stories from people whose own lives have been touched by depression and suicide in a range of ways, stories from people driven to reduce the stigma of mental illness and encourage compassion in a sometimes-cold world, stories about how craft heals us individually and as communities. May you find within these pages words that resonate, images that inspire, information that educates and above all a sense of hope, beauty and interconnectedness."--Amazon.com
