Times like this can be quite tricky to navigate, we have a lot of time on our hands and anxiety levels are naturally very high – we want to show you how crochet can help!
Whether it be for yourself or for a friend or family member, taking up a hobby can be a fantastic way of making time feel productive and there’s so much to gain emotionally from taking up a craft in the comfort of your own home.
Crochet Society gives you something to look forward to that keeps you busy, happy, healthy and indoors!
Why is crochet so good for you at a time like this?
Crochet is a real stress buster – when the world has gone a bit crazy it can help you to relax and unwind as you have to focus on the stitches you are making – it’s a form of mindfulness.
Crochet is all about self-expression, you choose the colours and the pattern – it’s not just about the finished product it’s about the whole creative process of making choices and learning new techniques from start to finish.
Crochet is a great way to meet new people – both on and offline. Look on Facebook for crochet groups you can join
or find a crochet group in your area – chatting and making friends comes more easily when you have something to do with your hands.
