Brown Sugar Stitchers – Quilt Display
Brown Sugar Stitchers are a diverse group of African American Quilters from all over the metropolitan Atlanta area. The organization was conceived in Winter 2000 as the culmination of the vision of Nancy Franklin and Jocelyn Carter who saw an opportunity to bring quilters in the area together. Brown Sugar Stitchers have been active in the cultural and educational affairs of their community since its formation. They have made quilts for Kwanzaa activities at the Wesley Chapel Library, displayed quilts at the DeKalb County Courthouse, have participated in enrichment activities in local public schools, and have entered quilt shows. Their signature public service activity over the last three years has been the donation of quilts to children residing at the Carrie Steele-Pitts Home for Children in Northwest Atlanta.
