Anti-Slavery Sewing Circles

December 3, 1847

“This is the season when Sewing Circles should flourish most ….Sewing Circles are among the best means for agitating and keeping alive the question of anti-slavery.  …. Some one of the members generally reads an anti-slavery book or paper to the others during the meeting, and thus some who don’t get a great deal of anti-slavery at home have an opportunity of hearing of it at the circle.”
