Valmai’s Story

14536941_1304661419545164_2104913787_oValmai tells us her story of how craft has helped her mental health.

 I suffer with clinical depression. I find cross stitching and knitting are my saviour. Not only does it keep me on an even keel (along with medication), but as a member of a local Slimming World group, it keeps my hands busy so I can’t eat and stitch too! I knit for charity which is my way of helping others. 

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