The Sewing Group at St. John the Divine began in 1939 and has provided beautiful hand-made objects for parishioners and fellowship for those who participate. The Group makes hand embroidered baby blankets and beaded Christmas ornaments. No experience is necessary! Marguerite Radhakrishnan is the facilitator.
The Group has evolved over the years; one of its ministries is the Prayer Shawl Ministry. The Group knits prayer shawls for people who are bereaved, undergoing medical treatment, or who are in any kind of distress. A note is included with the shawl that explains the ministry and the commitment of people to uphold each recipient in prayer during their time of need. Leigh Bonner is the facilitator of the ministry.
Because of the pandemic, the members of the Group have met by Zoom in order to continue their work and maintain fellowship. The plans are to continue Zoom meetings until we return to the building! All interested in sewing are welcome to join us. Contact Janet Sutton for Zoom details.
