September 2021 Events

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.

The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation

Sep 1, 2021 10:00 AM to Sep 29, 2021 12:00 PM

The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation is a unique grief support group for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one (recent loss or years ago). The group meets every Wed. morning from 10 a.m. – noon at the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., Shippensburg, PA. Participants bring their own craft projects (or use our supplies) and while they craft, they talk about grief or everything but grief. It’s a unique way to connect with fellow grievers in a positive, healing way.

 

We are seeking to create relationships that extend beyond the group in order to support and sustain us at difficult times in our grief journey. For more information, contact the DMTF at 717-532-8922 or drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net.
