THE STITCHED ART SOCIETY
A Place to Celebrate and Elevate Stitched Art
The Stitched Art Society (SAS) - The Fiber Art Arm of the Augusta Art Guild.
Started in July of 2021 by Augusta Art Guild member Jennifer Smith, the SAS is now part of the AAG. The developing community of the SAS, together with the AAG and it's key role in the Augusta community as a promoter and celebrator of art, is a partnership that will prove to further promote and celebrate art while making art, of all mediums, accessible to all.
For far too long stitched works have been considered craft. Great strides are being made to see such work as art, not just a craft or hobby. We want to be a part of that movement. We celebrate and elevate stitched works of art by those who have made a place for themselves in the stitched art world and others who are new the stitching community.
Here is where we start: community. Meet those practicing the stitched arts, see their work, read their stories, and find inspiration to elevate your own work. The SAS and AAG will host lectures and workshops with a focus on the stitched arts.
