GriefKnits Support Group

The GriefKnits Support Group meets the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Knitting has shown positive mental health benefits for grievers. Come and meet others who are grieving the death of a loved one and learn to knit or bring another craft project to work on. 

 

If you’re a griever who already knows how to knit/crochet, bring your current project and gather with them for conversation and fellowship. If you don’t have arts/crafts materials, they have lots of supplies you can use.  They provide the knitting supplies for our new knitters too. 

 

*This group usually meets at the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., Shippensburg, but is currently online due to Covid 19 so at the time, we can’t offer knitting instruction but we’re still offering the other benefits of the group – the amazing support and encouragement provided by connecting with fellow grievers. 

 

Pre-registration is required by contacting us at drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net so that we can send you the Zoom link prior to each meeting.
