Actually we're headed to the beach this weekend
Although, anytime I'm around is good for a crafty get together.
A few years ago I moved from Arkansas to North Jersey (worked in Bergen Co, lived in Sussex Co). One of the first things I did was to get acquainted with the local library. I found lots of crafty people there. I think it will be a wonderful - yet safe - adventure for you.
And if nothing else, you've got your craftster buddies for your artsy fix
Yes, it will be fine.
