Craft Yarn Council Video Highlight

The Craft Yarn Council has created an informative video about the health benefits of knitting and crochet. I’m honored that they’ve briefly highlighted my book with a text mention in this important video.

About the CYC

The Craft Yarn Council (CYC) represents the leading yarn companies, accessory manufacturers, magazine, book publishers, and consultants in the yarn industry. For more than 30 years the Council has sponsored a wide range of promotional and educational programs, including its highly acclaimed Certified Instructors Program, Discover Knit and Crochet classes, and its popular I Love YARN Day event (the second Friday in October), which offers a virtual meeting place for the nation’s knitters and crocheters.

About craft health

They say:

“Since the mid 1990s the Craft Yarn Council (CYC) has surveyed hundreds of thousands of knitters and crocheters about why they enjoy these crafts. Consistently over time, stress relief ranks at the top, along with creative fulfillment. In addition, a growing number of studies have been completed and articles written about the benefits of knitting and crochet to one’s mood, mind and even the body by treating symptoms of some diseases. “
