Editorial Reviews


"For years I've loudly argued that crochet IS personal for so many of us. We're not just "making stuff" we're keeping our hands busy and our runaway minds still and this book, THIS BOOK describes the raw experience tenderly, factually, and in a way that addresses our humanity with courtesy. Best of all, it offers the story of hope.  Hope in the personal life stories and hope in the exercises to help people learn to be mindful, find a peaceful center and hopefully find some kind of peace in their lives. This book is not depressing, it is empowering. You need this book." - Laurie Wheeler, Crochet Liberation Front

"Kathryn Vercillo gives many accounts in Crochet Saved My Life of how crochet has helped others, from empowering a woman who was a victim of rape, to helping a woman who suffers from hallucinations keep her grip on reality, to comforting a woman who is going blind. This book is a must-read for any crocheter who has ever felt alone or like no one else understands. If you only have time to read one book this year, make it this one." - Selena, CrochetKitten blog

"It's immediately obvious to anyone reading this book that the message reaches farbeyond crocheting: crafting, particularly tactile and engaging crafting, doeswonders for the spirit. Grab this book if you're stressed/anxious/depressed and arelooking for a light at the end of the tunnel. Read it for inspiration frompowerful women who have turned their lives around. If you have afriend/relative struggling with mental illness, read it as a way to gaininsight into their experience- as Kathryn has a gift for putting into wordsideas that usually remain hiding in the back of peoples' minds." Stacey, FreshStitches blog

From the Author

Before starting this book I knew that it was important to me that whatever I wrote next must be a story that came directly from my heart. I believe that each of us has an individual story to tell and that it is important to do so, to be honest about our experiences so that we can better understand ourselves and through that connect better to others. Overcoming depression was definitely the most important thing that had happened in my life and I knew there was a link to how crochet had been a part of that so I started journaling, blogging, and exploring this idea and it grew from there. Then I began to receive the stories from other strong, amazing women. They shared intimate details with me about illness and pain and truths about how they crafted to heal. I felt hugely entrusted with their stories and wanted to use this book to honor them. I believe that the anecdotal evidence about the benefits of crafting is strong here. However, it was also important to me to supplement that with research for any naysayers out there. Besides, I have a strong interest in mental health issues and wanted to really learn (and share) the how and why behind craft's therapeutic benefits. I believe I have been successful in doing that here!
