This year's #StichAwayStress campaign is all about self-care and its intersection with yarn crafts. Join us this April for tips on how to incorporate self-care into your life, meditative stitches to practice, soft yarns to soothe your nerves and so much more! All month on Instagram, we will provide insight about how yarn crafters and non-fiber artists alike incorporate self-care into their lives.

Ready for a fun project?

Make lemons into lemonade!

Make a lemon pillow of your own and make one to brighten someone else's day. Designed by crochet artist extraordinaire Twinkie Chan, it's cuddly and squeezable, and like the lemon stress ball Twinkie designed several years ago, a great stress reliever.
