Community Service

From inception the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild embraced public service and involved itself in the cultural and educational affairs throughout the community. We have been involved in enrichment programs at local public schools, the High Museum, the Atlanta History Center, Atlanta’s National Black Arts Festival, the Girl Scouts, and Quilts of Valor. Our signature public service activity is the yearly donation of quilts to children residing at the Carrie Steele-Pitts Home for Children in Southwest Atlanta.  In 2018 our Guild is also donating quilts to Faces, a non-profit organization serving children with craniofacial differences.  We ask that all members participate in these community service activities.

Education

Throughout the year, we have teachers and speakers present techniques in all aspects of quilting (from traditional to modern art quilts), and we sponsor various workshops. Our goal is to increase our knowledge and improve our skills. Members are invited to suggest potential speakers or techniques to the VP-Programs.
