About Sisters Quilting Collective

The Sisters Quilting (SQC) had its beginning in 2012 after an exhibition of quilts held at the Brickhouse Art Gallery in Sacramento, California. The Founding members were Jan Hollins, Barbra Lord, Faye Wilson Kennedy, Fredi Slaughter-Walker, Barbara Range and Kephera Alston.

The Sisters Quilting Collective (SQC) was organized to celebrate, preserve and continue the traditions of quilting and fiber arts and to keep quilting and fiber arts alive for future generations. SQC is a membership organization. We welcome individual quilters, textile and fabric artists, doll designers and collectors and the general public who support SQC’s mission. Membership in the SQC is open to any person, regardless of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or national origin.

SQC holds an annual quilt and fiber arts exhibit at the Brickhouse Gallery in February during Black History Month. The purpose of the exhibit is to promote, educate and create an interest and awareness in the historical value and contributions which quilters and fiber artists throughout the African Diaspora (di-as-po-ra) have given to the art of quilting and fiber arts.
