Stitch Away Stress with the Craft Yarn Council

Friday, April 13, 2018

#StitchAwayStress this April with the Craft Yarn Council.

Does the busyness of life have you feeling stressed out? Do you find yourself wishing for a way to unwind and just relax? Well look no further because the Craft Yarn Council has the perfect solution!

This year there's even a new spin on the lemon stress ball - a lemon pillow! This new lemon is the perfect companion to the lemon stress ball and even doubles as a pillow!


During the month of March, the council promoted a survey on social media to gauge the habits of  knitters and crocheters and to find out how yarn crafts contribute to their wellness. The results of the survey will be shared on the council's social media pages throughout the month of April.

The council will also host a social media contest for its Instagram followers. The contest will take place the second, third, and fourth weeks of April and to enter, participants will comment on the designated posts and tag three friends. One random winner will be chosen each week to win a prize pack of new yarns.

Follow along with the Craft Yarn Council's Facebook and Instagram for weekly tips on how to use your lemon or crochet skills to bust stress and promote relaxation. Hear from some of your favorite yarn crafters and drom some new faces too about all the ways that knit and crochet help them relieve stress, improve their mood, reduce anxiety and more!
