The Brown Sugar Stitchers held its annual tea July 21, 2007 at the beautiful Maggianos in Buckhead. The tea affords the ladies to get out of their quilting clothes and make themselves gorgeous. The hats were particularly spectacular this year.
The challenge this year was to make an unusual pin cushion. The creativity was over the top. An extra addition to the program was the presentation of the quilt made by the guild for Pete Williams. Mr. Williams had spent time in prison after being wrongfully convicted. He was recently cleared and released.
Many awards were given and the new officers were introduced and sworn in. Of special note this year was the President’s gift to the members. It was an original “corn bag” (aka heating pad) for each of us. I guess she figured the aches and pains are creeping upon all of us.
The Brown Sugar Stitchers honored me by awarding me the “Quilter of Vision” Award for establishing the Clara Ford Foundation and the award for making the most quilts during the year.
