    I agree fully. The process is more important than the product but in the end, a beautiful product is incredibility uplifting to the creator. The creative process can be incredibly confidence building for those struggling with personal identity issues.

      Yes, I think the product can be an important aspect of wellness, too. The more we embrace each aspect of a craft project, the more we can benefit!

    In recent months, I have become more aware of the way in which crafting, specifically crochet and knitting has been impactful in work with youth at risk. This would be a great concept to pursue, I think.

      Definitely. There are some great substance abuse programs and juvenile justice programs that offer crafting to heal. I’d love to know more about the things you’ve learned about this.

    I LOVE to craft but due to arthritis in my hands I am unable to knit or crochet. Can you recommend any other creative outlets to help? Currently I am pursuing recycled crafts mostly using old books and paper.
