“The Guild meets every third Saturday of each month at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Arlington to sew, share ideas and techniques, and to celebrate our love of quilting. SISJBTC guild members reside in the greater Boston area, Southshore, Metrowest including Springfield and Worcester. We are joined together by our shared experience in quilting which focuses on the African American group’s perspective.
The art of quilting has traveled across oceans, survived 400 years of slavery, and has been carried down by generations of our family and friends. Now it’s up to us to keep the tradition going and to pass it along. Over the centuries, we of African descent have joined together to make quilts as a way of sharing our joys, sorrows, traditions, and to celebrate our history. Quilting connects us to our ancestry, preserves our memories, and gives us a way to connect with generations to come. Sisters in Stitches Joined by the Clot celebrates our heritage and reinforces the link that binds us to our collective history and is our way of contributing and participating in our traditions.”
