What an Amazing Day – Thank You!

Trinity Bazaar Pickle Pantry

Shoppers get buying and serving tips at the Pickle Pantry.

Thank you so much for making our 70th Anniversary Bazaar a fabulous one!

The rain held off, the food was good, the sales were fine, the music was hopping, and the Carnival was a blast! (Did you see Cocky riding the pony? priceless….)

We’ll have more news about it all in the weeks to come, but for now, thank you for everything!

The Crosses of Trinity’s

TheTrinity Needlework Guild celebrates their faith through the needle arts.
Their beautiful work is displayed throughout the Cathedral. Look for their touch on seat cushions and kneeling pads in the altar area of the main Cathedral and in Trinity’s various chapels.

(Did you know you can take a tour of our historic church home? Learn more here.)

We are grateful to the Needlework Guild for putting their loving touch on the Bazaar. In addition to hosting a needlework booth, year-by-year the guild has crafted a series of Christmas ornaments celebrating Trinity’s variety of crosses.

Past years’ ornaments were inspired by the crosses in the cathedral nave and on a gate in Seibel’s Chapel. This year’s cross ornament will be modeled on the Trinity Budded Cross depicted above.

Guild members could use your help – demand is high! They are already hard at work cross-stitching 72 ornaments.

  • Could you pitch in to help make cording (rope ties) and assemble the ornaments?

Attend a workshop where Guild members will show you how. Sign up for a workshop below and you will receive the details.

The Needlework Guild also welcomes church members’ donations of their own handiwork items. Do you knit, crochet, needlepoint, smock, or cross-stich? 

Would you donate one of your items to Bazaar Needlework Booth? Let us know about your donation by emailing us at TrinityBazaar@TrinitySC.org.

And last but not least, are you interested in becoming a member of the Needlework Guild? Needlework Guild Chair, Allison Johnson, Bazaar Booth Chair, Louise Taylor, and the Needlework Guild welcome all Trinity Cathedral members who want to join the stitching-knitting-smocking-downright darning-good fun!

Over three generations of Trinity women and friends have baked and cooked, canned and pickled, stitched and knitted, crafted, gardened, and collected items to sell at the Bazaar all to raise funds for Columbia service organizations.

We’re pretty excited about celebrating and hope you’ll join us!
