Pastor Homan felt very uneasy with his wife hosting the Ladies' Sewing Circle. No amount of cajoling on his part could convince the women to take their labors into the nearby barn. He understood the holy purpose behind their work, though, and so contented himself with keeping watch as they enjoyed the sunshine and fresh air.
He knew the most extreme measures would be called for should anyone happen upon them and was unsure he was prepared for that. Still and all, proper Klan robes did not sew themselves and each man had his part to play in their crusade.
