Recently published craft book Crochet Saved My Life will be represented at multiple stops on the upcoming Hudson Valley Yarn Crawl. This yarn crawl event celebrates a love of all fiber arts. The book, although focused on crochet, also honors the value of all needlework crafts as a means to achieving a variety of different health benefits and so is the perfect addition to this event.

Crochet Saved My Life is a non-fiction book by Kathryn Vercillo about the health benefits of crafting. The author interviewed 23 women about their experiences with a variety of different health and mental health issues and shared their raw, honest, inspiring stories in this book. She also bravely shared her own story of crocheting as she healed through lifelong depression. The book, released in August 2012 to a slew of positive reviews, is a testimony to the idea that handcrafting heals.

The Hudson Valley Yarn Crawl is a twice-yearly event. A yarn crawl is when multiple yarn stores and fiber farms in the same area come together to celebrate crafting with special events, deals, and more. It provides local knitters, crocheters, spinners and others who love fiber the chance to come together in one place to celebrate their passions. The Fall 2012 Hudson Valley Yarn Crawl is scheduled for November 17th and 18th. There are more than one dozen participating locations in the Hudson Valley.

Four of the stops on the Fall 2012 Hudson Valley Yarn Crawl will be featuring Crochet Saved My Life in some way. Spruceridge Farm, an alpaca farm with an adjoining unique fiber shop, is carrying copies of the book available for purchase. Yarn shops Countrywool in Hudson and The Perfect Blend Yarn and Tea Shop in Saugerties are each offering a giveaway copy of the book as well as 10% off discount coupons for online orders. Those discount coupons will also be available at Scarecrow Farm, a multigenerational family farm in Upper Hollowville.
