The gentle art of using fiber can help to manage and control pain from on-going chronic illness, or simply as a tool to settle the mind. Redirecting your mind and focusing on something productive can provide a much needed management tool.
Sometimes the loss of being productive can be a particularly devastating aspect of becoming seriously ill. For me, Fiber Arts gave me a way to gain control of the pain and at the same time, find a way to be productive. This does not mean the pain is gone but I have learned through using Fiber Arts to channel that pain into something beautiful and productive. As I have slowly improved, I have been able to add different aspects to my skills.
The amazing aspect of Fiber Arts is no matter what kind of challenges you might face, there will be a Fiber Art you can master and produce beautiful textiles for yourself, friends and family. Taking your illness and producing something charming and usable.
