Contemplative Craft

I have long paired crafting with suffering. Crafting brings a meditative moment to life, helps reduce stress, and melts chaotic elements (if only for a short time). I have crocheted and knit for over twenty years and have had various iterations of craft shops. Now, my shop and my craft have a greater purpose: to provide comfort for grief.

My companion craft website is up and running…though, still under construction. I hope you enjoy the site as it develops. I plan to offer handmade condolence items and memorial project ideas.

There are two ways three ways to reach the shop:

  1. by clicking the Contemplative Craft menu heading at the top of the page,
  2. by clicking HERE, and
  3. by typing directly into the navigation bar.
