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.
In the months leading up to our Christmas Fair the members are busy creating one-of-a-kind handcrafted items for the Craft Table, searching through recipes for a new idea for the Gourmet Table and gathering items to decorate wreaths and table decorations.
During the week before the Fair the Members will be very busy decorating fabulous wreaths, beautiful table and mantle pieces.
At home our wonderful bakers will be at work on items for the Gourmet Table. Last-minute touches are being added to the hand-created works for the Craft Table where you will find beautiful knits, cards and many unexpected items. This year there will be a new Needlepoint Ornaments created by the Needles Group. They have been working all year on these exquisite works of art.
Come early and shop. Members will be available to help you.. The first Saturday in December, 8:00 am to 12:30 pm, Village Hall, 34 Leonard St., Gloucester 01930.
The proceeds from this fundraiser are donated to Cape Ann non-profits and and scholarships to Gloucester High School graduating seniors living in Annisquam who are going on to further studies.
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.
