I am really happy that the new church we began attending that is MUCH bigger than back in CT - has lots of small groups for folks to get involved with - but the one that caught my eye in getting to know fellow crocheters is the "Prayer Shawl" ministry.
I attended some seminars in CT at a retreat center that had the founders/authors of 2 of the largest groups going - and it was phemonal but our local parish didn't have the interest to have one and the Town Hall did have one but it met at a really difficult time to go. When I did go it was only an hour and people just got started on their projects in time to pack up.
Then I was in a local Sit 'n Knit that was great and was on 2 days a week - so when you couldn't make one - you could hit the following one. What a great group it was - not prayer shawls - but a great mix of knitters and crocheters and was the entire afternoon - come and go as you please!
The one LYS near me doesn't offer that type of thing.
So you can imagine when I spotted this group that meets Tuesday mornings at 10 am - I was so happy! Tomorrow is my first time going. Hoping to link up with others as we continue to get our bearings here in Western PA
