In 1994, a group of ladies from TVBC wanted to form a group to sew needed items for charitable organization. They had a desire to use their talents to help other and enjoy Christian fellowship.
They named their group “The Sewing Bees”. They chose to meet in the church fellowship hall on Thursdays, except for holidays, canning season and bad weather
They began sewing items for the nursing homes such as lap blankets and walker pockets. They also created turbans for the cancer centers and prayer/comfort pillows for those who need healing prayer. Also made were activity aprons for dementia patients. Clothing was being sewn for Samaritan’s Purse shoe boxes and other foreign missions.
The group also constructed gifts of quilts for newly married couples and new babies. Blankets were sewn for social services, flood victims and blankets to be kept in police cruisers to help comfort hurting people.
This group may have different members, but their desire to serve the Lord and others is a common denominator.
