As the October leaves are turning red, The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild from Atlanta, Georgia brought exquisitely stitched quilts for a spectacular Annual Quilting exhibition! The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild of Atlanta, GA is a diverse group of African-American quilters from all over the Atlanta metropolitan area. The crafters of this guild have gained popularity both regionally and nationally.
Also in this annual show is the Pieceful Hearts Quilters Guild, from right here in Augusta! Pieceful Hearts Quilters Guild was founded in October 1988 when Ille Waters called together interested quilters to organize and establish a local quilting guild. PHQG members share a common interest in the art of quilt making and desire to promote and perpetuate all aspects of quilting. Members share their knowledge, techniques, and skills with each other and the community through club programs, community outreach projects (i.e. quilts for children at the Ronald McDonald House) and demonstrations.
On November 4th this beautiful display of fiber arts will open to the public! Showing concurrently with the quilt exhibition will be the Museum’s collection of African American dolls. The dolls will be on display in cases. The gallery opening reception is FREE and will be from 3 to 5:30 PM. Light refreshments will be served and members of the guilds will be in attendance. Please join us as quilt lovers explore the artistry and history of quilting!
