Get Out. 
Make New Friends.
Have Fun!

If you’re looking for an opportunity to get out of the house, make new friends, and participate in exciting activities, then look no further.  New Friends of Carolina (NFC) is what you’ve been looking for.  Founded in 1989 as a not-for-profit social club for women, NFC welcomes both new comers to the Carolinas as well as those who have lived here for years.

There’s no need for concern about pressure.  You’ll find the members of our club to be both friendly and welcoming.  They simply want you to join in the activities and have some fun.  There’s something for everyone.   For a complete list of activities, see INTEREST GROUPS below.

Meet Our Speaker
Jen LaPierre

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Jennifer LaPierre has always been a crafter and a designer.  After years of tying different crafts, she realized that there had to be a better way to experience them than through making countless trips to craft stores, trying new tools and supplies, and scouring the internet for videos and tutorials.  Jennifer therefore set out to make the crafting world a better and more enjoyable space, where people can come together and experience new crafts and get help in a hazzle-free environment.

In 2017, Jennifer started her company WeCraft Lab, which provides a clean, inviting space with experts to help.  It also provides all the best equipment you will need to accomplish anything you may want to try.  In addition, affordably priced products are sold in quantities that are perfect for trying something new or completing a single project.

You don't want to miss this exciting event, where Jennifer will show us some of the Christmas crafts that she has to offer.

President's Message


Hello Ladies,

I want to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving.   It’s hard to believe that you are reading this only a week before this wonderful holiday.  I hope all of you enjoy the holiday and will be safe if you are travelling.

It has come to my attention that another long-time member of New Friends passed away, and the information was not passed on to either Susan Brandenburg or myself.  If you hear of a member who has either passed away or is sick, please let us know.  Shirley Harris was originally from South Africa.  I learned at a funeral that I attended that she recently passed away.  Shirley loved to play Mah Jongg and attended the monthly luncheons.

Last month’s luncheon was a big success and was very well attended.  We had Talbot’s present a style show for the group.  Talbot’s gave away 10 - $50 gift cards along with several little broaches.  It was really a fun event.  Thanks again to Barbara and Moira for arranging this event.

We would like to start a game day.  We are looking for someone to head this event.  You would only need to put information on the website and contact the host to see which game she has chosen to play.  It would not be a very involved position at all.  Hopefully, we have a member out there that would be interested.  If so please let me know.
