Hook to Heal

Click here for larger image.

You may recall my review of Kathryn Vercillo's book, Crochet Saved My Life, in the Nov. 20, 2012, issue of Talking Crochet. Kathryn has just announced her newest project, Hook to Heal. The project, which is a book and corresponding set of online classes, received support from funders on Indiegogo. Crochet lovers, artists and makers of all kinds donated to the cause because they believe in the value of crochet as a tool to access creativity and improve total well-being and quality of life. Crochet is more than just a craft; it is a path toward a better self.

Kathryn asks: "Do you have a desire to explore your creativity, but also a fear of calling yourself an 'artist'? Do you wish you were more creatively fulfilled, but fail to take time for yourself to just create? Are there emotional issues blocking your creative side? Crochet can help! This simple and easy-to-learn craft can be used in unique ways to get in touch with your inner artist, explore and eradicate your deepest creative fears, and restore balance to your personal life." The Hook to Heal project is a project that will help make this happen.

Hook to Heal will have three core products, all coming out in autumn 2013 As described on the project's Indiegogo page, included are:

  • Creativity Exercises Book. The book, due out Oct. 1, 2013, is a book of creativity exercises for crocheters. It will show how crochet can be used to achieve mindfulness, release artistic fear, push to the next level of creativity, celebrate life, improve relationships and more. Many topics of creativity will be explored in this book to challenge crochet lovers to find new ways to craft themselves to wellness.
  • 12-Week Online Creativity Classes. Beginning in the fall, the author will also be launching online creativity classes. These will be weekly classes with chat/video components that offer detailed lessons and guidance exploring the core ideas presented in the Hook to Heal book.
  • One-on-one Email Support for Crochet Creativity. The author is going to take the lessons that she's learned about using crochet to get deeper into your creative self. She'll be your personal creative crochet coach armed with hooks to help you get to the next stage of your personal growth.

Hook to Heal is a comprehensive program for people who want to use crafting to better their lives. However, each of the three parts will be available individually, so you don't have to commit to the total plan if you don't want to.
