I am thrilled that the crochet and crafting community has been so positive in receiving my book, Crochet Saved My Life. However, what I really want to see is the book gain wider acceptance in the mental health community because I genuinely believe it offers a unique perspective on one tool for healing. Because of that I was really excited to see this week that PsychCentral gave the book a positive review!
Caroline Comeaux Lee says in part in her review:
“Crochet Saved My Life is a worthwhile read. As an avid crafter and crocheter, I found the book at times enlightening, and could relate to much of it. Vercillo’s ability to weave statistics and reports into her narrative is also impressive. Her tone is friendly and sensitive while also being professional and direct—she does not sugar-coat or play down the intensity that can be found within each individual condition she addresses. Nor does she attempt to trump modern medicine or therapy with the value of needlework.
The author’s message, simple as it may be, is that the meditative power of crochet and knit could potentially bring a wealth of comfort and clarity to the suffering and the stressed. I, for one, could not agree more.”
