Crocheting and Knitting for Health

Spring 2023

348, James E. Walker Library (LIB)

More Details

Did you know that crafting helps reduce anxiety, builds self-esteem, and helps relieve depression?  Whether you are an old hand at knitting and crochet or you are yarn curious and want to learn, please join us.  We will explore basic stitches in crochet and knitting while creating a coaster or dishrag.  For the experienced, please feel free to bring a UFO (UnFinished Object) to work on.  Please bring a ball of 100% cotton, worsted weight yarn (e.g., Peaches & Creme or Sugar & Cream) in the color of your choice. You will also need a crochet hook in the size of G or H or knitting needles in a 6, 7, or 8.  These items are available at any craft store (e.g., JoAnn Fabrics, Michael’s), Walmart, or Amazon.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
