Extract

The Swedish branch of the missionary movement and sewing circles in the Church of Sweden are two sides of the same coin. They started at about the same time, in the 1830s and in the 1840s, and they depended on, and still depend on, each other. Over the years, thousands of Church of Sweden sewing circles have had foreign mission as their purpose. The sewing circles’ money raising and knowledge were and are of great significance for Swedish foreign mission.
