Elaine’s Story

elaines-storyElaine tells us how craft has helped her during depression. 

I live in constant pain and there are many times I can’t leave the house. I have suffered severe depression over the years. If I didn’t have crafts to keep me focused and amused. Especially CALs and Facebook groups who share their crafts I would be isolated and very lonely. To make something beautiful and share the joy with online friends is priceless.

I think it is important that people know that a lot of crafters use craft as a tool to keep themselves well and that a craft community is one of the best therapies there is.

You can read more stories of how craft has helped people’s mental health every day this month. You can see more here.
