The purpose of the Annisquam Sewing Circle, a standing committee of the Annisquam Village Hall Association, is to promote the furtherance of friendship and congeniality and the performance of acts of benevolence.
The Annisquam Sewing Circle was invited to participate in the Annisquam Farmers’ Market again this year. We are grateful to Bud Ris of the AFM, and his crew for making that possible.
We are also very grateful for all of you who purchased the wonderful baked goods and the many beautiful bouquets created by the members of the ASC for you.
The Annisquam Sewing Circle will be back Friday, August 12, 9:00 – noon with another Gourmet Food Sale. Mark your calendar. See you there!
All the proceeds from Annisquam Sewing Circle events are returned to the community in the form of donations to Cape Ann nonprofits including the Village Hall Association that is responsible for the maintenance of the Village Hall, the Leonard School, and the Fire House. These three building are home to many of the Village organizations. In addition, scholarships are awarded to Annisquam graduating seniors who are furthering their education.
The Annisquam Sewing Circle has been reaching out to the community since its inception. Bags of groceries were left on the doorsteps of families in need. Hats and mittens were knit for soldiers during the Civil War and nippers for the Gloucester fishermen. Items were made for the ASC Christmas Fair which included little men out of toothpicks and raisins for children to buy as gifts for family and friends. The money raised went back to the community.
Times have changed but the needs of the community remain the same. The funds raised by the ASC are donated to Cape Ann Community organizations like Wellspring, Open Door, Backyard Growers, and Animal Aid as well as scholarships for Gloucester High School graduating seniors who are going on to college or other post-graduate training.
