Hook To Heal: The Friend You Always Wanted
Have you ever wished that you had a best friend who completely understood why you love to crochet? Someone who knew that crochet is not just a hobby but an amazing tool that allows you to be creative, share your love for others, help yourself and help the world around you? Hook to Heal, a new book project and multimedia support system, aims to provide a sense of that friendship.
The book, due out in Autumn 2013, is a book of creativity exercises designed to help people use the craft of crochet to access greater creativity in their everyday lives. The exercises will challenge crochet lovers to think about the craft differently, explore their inner artistic blocks and challenges, push their own creative boundaries, improve their various relationships with others and honor their deepest need to create.
Also starting in the fall will be Hook to Heal online classes as well as an email support system similar to creativity coaching but rooted in crochet. These other components will offer crocheters one-on-one and small group support for learning self-improvement through the act of crochet. These classes will be good for people working at any level in crochet as the work will be all about completing the process within the safety of this supportive environment and not necessarily focused on the products that will be completed.
Hook to Heal is a self-published project. In order to make it happen, it needs some funding so there’s an Indiegogo fundraiser happening right now. The great thing about crowdsourced funding like this is that you can support a project you believe in while getting something in return. People who contribute just $1 to the Hook to Heal project will get their name in the acknowledgments of the book.
Donations of larger amounts come with perks like receiving an advance print copy of the book one month before it becomes available to the buying public, getting in on the first of the online class sessions or even spending a week in San Francisco getting one-on-one crochet-for-creativity mentoring with the author.
