The Annisquam Sewing Circle was begun in 1837 as the Annisquam Female Benevolent Society. It is thought to be the oldest continuous independent society of women on Cape Ann.
The Society's purpose as stated in its Preamble, was "for the performance of acts of benevolence." Through the years, the Society, and now the Circle, has contributed generously to community programs and to individuals. The Scholarship Fund, to assist young people in the Village continue their education, was established in 1974.

As Winter settles in...

The excitement of the holidays has wound down. The wreaths are being removed from the doors. The daylight hours are increasing. Our thoughts turn to Spring.

Get out the handwork again. Try a new recipe. Make a list of the seeds and plants needed for the garden. The Spring Plant Sale will be here before you know it!
