SALs and Mental Health

Oh, the best of intentions. Back in December I wrote about what I was planning to stitch this year. And, now that we are just over two weeks into the new year, my plans are already changing. I started stitching Liz Almond’s Sublime Stitches, but I ultimately decided it wasn’t for me. 🙁

Good news, though! I’ve found a new (almost) yearlong SAL to stitch! Stitchrovia’s Quotes to Live By is a 9-part SAL in support of the UK charity mind, which provides advice and support to anyone experiencing mental health issues. Each chart costs just £1.99 (well within my $25/month Stitch from Stash budget), with proceeds going to mind.

You can find out more information on the SAL Facebook page right here.

And, speaking of supporting mental health, this coming Monday (January 25th), is Bell Let’s Talk day in Canada. Bell Canada is one of our largest telephone/Internet/cable companies, but they also support many charities like Kid’s Help Phone. On Let’s Talk day, Bell donates 5¢ for every tweet, Instagram post, etc with the tag #BellLetsTalk. You can find out all about it right here.

If you need help, check online for a program like mind or Mental Health Helpline in your country.

  1. And stitching is believed to help support mental health, so very suitable…

    I’ve seen this all over Instagram. I will enjoy cheering you along. Good luck with it. I joined the Under the Sea SAL from Lakeside Needlecraft. But the one you picked is lovely indeed.

    A lovely SAL for a very good cause! I am very tempted…

  4. Sounds like a good plan and supporting a good cause too.

    A great SAL to be a part of.

    I bought the first instalment because I like the quote and also to show solidarity to the cause. I’m waiting to see what some of the other quotes are before I commit to stitching it.

    What a great idea!
