Who are we
Sisters in Stitches Joined by the Cloth celebrate culture, color, design, and tradition which was formally established in 1997 and tradition. The Guild meets every third Saturday of each month to sew, share ideas and techniques and to celebrate our love of quilting. Our first meeting took place at the Old Town Hall in Randolph, Massachusetts before moving to the Quilters Compass in Quincy and then at the First Congregational Church in Randolph.
We currently meet at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Arlington, Ma. 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 Cloth celebrates our heritage and reinforced the link that binds us to our collective history and is our way of contributing and participating in our traditions.
