Make Muse Interview Feature Excitiment!

I am over the moon to have been featured over on the Make Muse website sharing lots of insight into my creative life and work!

A little about Make Muse

"Make Muse is an online magazine dedicated to highlighting the vast and varied experiences of young women and all of the cool things they do--on any scale. We’re a team of feminists, and if that word scares you, this might be the right place for you to explore what the f-word actually means through daily news, submitted work, and monthly interviews."

Here's a snippet from my article... 

Geithner: On your website, you note that crafting is known to “empower groups and individuals, help overcome anxiety, stress, and grief.” Has crafting always been both a passion of yours as well as a form of therapy? And, for others, do you think crafting can help even those who do not consider themselves to be particularly creative artistically inclined?

Before I even understood what mindfulness was about I knew that crafting went much deeper than making pretty things for me, and saw how profoundly it could empower the groups I taught. I will openly admit I am rubbish at meditation! But if you pass me a cross stitch sampler or a ball of yarn and crochet hook I can while away hours on end in my calmest most contemplative way creating one stitch at a time… whilst my usually buzzing thoughts come together helping me reset!

I have seen first hand how crafting can also provide this kind of escape for others too! From groups of women with no confidence in themselves leaving workshops feeling empowered by a crochet granny square, to those suffering from loneliness finding like-minded friends for life. Crafting isn’t just about learning a fiddly little skill… it’s about community!
