Allers Magazine – Norway

Allers Side 2

The Norwegian Magazine Allers just published an article on my life focusing on the journey of Hope, Healing, Recovery and a Joy for Life!

What a beautiful response from people far and wide being inspired to talk about either being an alcoholic or having loved ones struggling with the disease. There is hope!

……and I love that women are using the theme of “Knitting in Recovery – One Stitch at a Time” in their knitting groups!

Published in a British Knitting Magazine!

It is so fun working with new materials. I love that they can make yarn out of the Nettle Fiber……how organic can it get?:-)

The hat itself is knit and then I crocheted the brim mixing Nettle and Wire so you can shape it any way you want!

A Perfect Summer Hat!

Ojai Rotary Club Grant Recipient

What a great honor to be one 2014’s grant recipients from the Ojai Rotary Club.

Proud to stand side by side wonderful organizations like Help of Ojai and the Nan Talbert Foundation. “One Stitch at a Time-Knitting in Recovery” is being recognized and acknowledged for the work we do using Knitting and Crocheting as tools for healing, compassion and inspiration. We are all Women IN Recovery, Knitting FOR Recovery, and this particular project for the Ojai Valley Family Shelter is to supply all the homeless who walk into one of our shelters with a hat and scarf set. Attached is a letter from the woman who knit them with love. Planting seeds goes a long way, and you never know who might find recovery. We are also knitting Blankets the shelters get to keep……and will hopefully have enough blankets to go around for everybody……in a few years:-)
