About

Crochet helps to heal PTSD one loop at a time

My name is Leah and I am a childhood sexual trauma survivor. The crochet projects I take on get me out of my head and into the world again creating something that others can enjoy. I never use a pattern when I crochet because I love being in control of the small stitches that turn into a three dimensional play-toy for a child or a functional piece an adult can use every day. Because of my experiences I am connected to my inner child in a twisted way and I think through my treatment, crochet has been a way for my inner child and real adult selves to work together. Each twist of the yarn is a moment for my two selves to twist, working in harmony and creating peace in me.

20% of sales will go to the Chicago Children's Advocacy Center. I will donate monthly to this cause on your behalf when you buy my handmade items. 80% of the sale will be kept by me to pay my medical treatment bills for PTSD from childhood sexual abuse. ShopAdele will help organizations that support children who are being abused and adults who were in the past. We survive but we do not always thrive.
