Sewing Women At Trinity
The ladies of SWAT invite you to come and join
us, Tuesday mornings from 8:30 a.m.

We make quilts and comforters to sell at our Christmas
Bazaar in November, and to donate to various
agencies in the Rogue Valley. (We also make our
famous mincemeat in November).
You do not need any sewing skills, however, a
sense of humor is mandatory! (and possibly a small
sewing kit, or we can provide one).
At 10:30 a.m. we have tea and cookies, gossip and
No auditions…….just show up, we’d love to have
The Sewing Women at Trinity is the oldest among our social ministries at Trinity, having been founded
more than fifty years ago. Currently twelve women form the core of the group. Its stated mission is to “Keep people warm”. Each year they assemble about 100 quilts. Many of these are donated to other non-profits who service the poor and needy in the Rogue Valley. Among the recipients of these quilts are Habitat for Humanity who gives quilts to families as they move into their newly built homes, and Dunn House who provides shelter and counseling to abused women and children in the Rogue Valley. The group holds an annual bazaar selling quilts, table runners, purses, and other creations of our talented team. The proceeds of the bazaar are used to purchase materials for the quilts and for other charitable projects in the church and community.
One of the interesting items produced for the bazaar each year is mincemeat made from the
generations-old recipe of Grandma Headberg. This sweet-spicy condiment attracts buyers in the know
from across southern Oregon.
