About The Camden Red Cross sewing circles
The Camden wartime sewing circles played a vital role on the home front during First and Second World Wars. These collaborative ‘working bees’ attracted local women from across the district who were able to use their skills to manufacture clothing and supplies for the war effort.
As bloody conflicts raged thousands of kilometres away, women got together to sew or knit items such as shirts, pyjamas, mittens and medical supplies.
