Knitting and Felting

Knitting and felting activities can enhance self-esteem.

According to Dr. Herbert Benson, a pioneer in mind/body medicine and author of “The Relaxation Response,” says that the repetitive action of needlework can induce a relaxed state like that associated with meditation and yoga. Once you get beyond the initial learning curve, knitting and crocheting can lower heart rate and blood pressure and reduce harmful blood levels of the stress hormone cortical.

 

Knitting / Felting can  :

  • Bring happiness
  • Help to stay calm and focus
  • Improve mood and mind
  • Provides a social outlet when knitting in groups
  • Reduce anxiety and depression

Since numerous researches have shown that knitting/ felting have the extraordinarily emotional and social benefits, we have designed various knitting/felting classes, from basic to advance, from small project to big project.
