Sewing Club’s final gathering


Mon, Sep 28th, 2015
Posted in Preston Features



On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, the Sewing Club conducted their final monthly meeting at noon at the Branding Iron in Preston, Minn.

Present for this final meeting were five of the last remaining members of the club that had lasted nearly 60 years. Joyce Simonson (Preston), Evie Christianson (Preston), Elinor Hall Abraham (Canton), Margaret Milne (Preston), and Marie Amdahl (Lanesboro).

One of the original members, who joined when she was 23 years old, was Margaret Milne. She shared that the Sewing Club started in 1946, and met monthly throughout the years. The club always maintained a membership of 10 to 12 women, and they met at each member’s home on a rotating basis. While they had their meetings, their kids would play outside together. And, when their kids were young and in school, they didn’t have meetings during the summer because they were too busy. As their kids got older and more independent, they switched their schedule to meet throughout the summer months but skip a few months during the winter. The local Sewing Club had a long yarn of members spanning over the past 60 years, which became a common thread between households.
