Brown Sugar Stitchers Gather for Tea

The highlight of the social season for the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild occurs July 16, 2005, when they assemble at the Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta for tea. The quilters adorn their fanciest hats and best smiles ready for much fun and fellowship.

During the tea, the new officers are sworn in, and awards are handed out to the quilters for various accomplishments during the year. However, the most special part of the tea is when the quilts are presented to the Carrie Steele Pitts Orphanage. Making quilts for the kids at the orphanage has long been a service project of the Brown Sugar Stitchers. My personal entry was called Dressed for the Dance.

The quilts being presented at the tea were exhibited at the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show held in May at the Wesley Chapel Library in Decatur, GA.. They were all beautifully colorful with themes that would delight any young person.

After the tea, the hats are packed lovingly away and it’s back to the quilt frame!
