As the October leaves are turning red, The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild from Atlanta, Georgia has brought twenty 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 metropolitan area. The crafters of this guild have gained popularity both regionally and nationally. This is their fifth visit to the museum, becoming a staple of the November to December schedule.

The first of two special events tied to the Quilting Exhibition is the Senior Luncheon on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 from 11:30 am until 1:00 pm. It will feature a panel of renown quilters. Cost is $11.00 per person. Lunch will be provided. RSVP with payment is required by Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

There will also be a reception for the Quilt Exhibition held on Sunday, October 29, from 3:30pm -5:00pm at the Museum. Refreshments will be served and members of the Brown Sugar Stitchers will be in attendance. Please join us as quilt lovers explore the artistry and history of quilting.

The Laney Museum is the cornerstone for the cultural and historical preservation of African American history in Augusta and surrounding area. Support of the Gala benefits the preservation of Augusta’s Destination for Black History, the Museum’s important local historic programs and fine art advocacy, while ensuring that awareness of Augusta’s rich black heritage continues to grow for future generations.
