Stitchlinks has three arms.

The first, and fundamental to everything we do, is our support network for those who enjoy the therapeutic benefits of crafts, our forums and information articles.

The second is our research arm. We are pioneering research into the benefits of crafts, in particular knitting, and through this work developing therapeutic approaches which could change the way we, as a society, view and prioritise wellbeing and treat long-term medical conditions.

The third provides information to clinicians, teachers, the craft trade and others who wish to use therapeutic knitting and run therapeutic knitting groups.

To enable you to get the most out of Stitchlinks we've put together a guide to help you navigate the website and make full use of our Forums. Many of our members have never used a forum before so if you're feeling a bit nervous about chatting online, don't worry we're here to help and Your Guide to Stitchlinks will show you the way.
