Arbor Hospice to host Crocheting Through Grief support group

LUDINGTON, Mich. (Oct. 6, 2017) – Members of Ludington and surrounding communities are invited to attend Crocheting Through Grief, a monthly grief support program hosted by Arbor Hospice. The group will meet on the first Monday of every month from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Arbor Hospice office located at 5177 US-10 Suite B in Ludington.

Participants will learn basic crocheting skills as they discuss grief and loss topics based on the interests of those in attendance. The focus of the group is to practice self-care skills of “creativity” and “giving back.” Participants will create blankets that will be donated to a local hospital. Beginners and experts alike are invited to experience a creative outlet for their grief in a non-judgmental environment. Donations of crochet needles and yarn will be accepted and are greatly appreciated.

The event is free and open to the public, regardless of whether or not a loved one has received care from Arbor Hospice. For more information or to register, please contact Katie Gedraitis at 231.845.3423 or
