CELEBRATING JOYOUS SISTERHOOD, POWERFUL VOICES AND HEARTS OF SERVICE
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the principles of sisterhood, scholarship, and service with a passion for social justice.
As a proud member of the Divine Nine, I was honored when Beverly Smith, President & CEO commissioned me to develop this Special Edition Gift Quilt exclusively for the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta just in time for the 55th National Convention held in Atlanta Georgia.
Joy Power Service Special Edition Gift Quilt
Commemorating the sisterhood of the women of Delta Sigma Theta, this quilt is a soft, usable keepsake. As a timeless gift for self or others that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Through the design, I wanted to capture the essence of the multigenerational women, each dynamic in their own right, that make Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated the organization it is today. Inspired by the presidential insignia, three women are nestled together within the Delta symbol and surrounded by lush violets. Each woman adorned in the sorority’s symbolism reflects the spirit of Joy, Power and Service. I made sure there are embroidered touches everywhere – on the Delta, the violets, on their skin, hair and jewelry – to make this quilt extra special.
I’m proud to share 10% of the proceeds from this quilt will go to the Delta Research and Education Foundation (DREF).
- Pre-washed, supersoft, luxe cotton voile
- Lightweight for year-round use, ideal for warm or cool temperatures.
- Embroidered touches with reversible design.
- Quality materials that are easy to care for.
- Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated Special Edition, gift-ready packaging.
NOTE: Limited quantities of quilts are in stock and ready for immediate shipment. This will be the last time to order this quilt. Once the current supply is sold, the quilt will be retired.
A QUILT TO FORTIFY YOUR JOURNEY
So much of who we are as women of African descent has been passed down from generation to generation. My grandmother taught me to quilt the traditional way when I was 21. Ever since, I have been evolving into the textile artist I am today.
Quilts can heal, inspire, comfort, and share generational stories.
I created my line of gift quilts to touch more people. They are for those quiet moments when we do the hard work of dreaming, reflecting, healing, deciding, and motivating ourselves. I want to support people through the emotional journeys of life while making it easy to give a truly meaningful gift that warms the body and fortifies the spirit.
A Message from President & CEO, Beverly Smith
“I commissioned this quilt as a gift to celebrate the Joy, Power and Service within each and every woman of Delta Sigma Theta.
Quilts have played an important role in telling our ancestors stories. So I thought this was a unique and symbolic way to capture the beauty, intelligence and selflessness of my sorors.
I want it to serve as a warming reminder of the Joy In Our Sisterhood, The Power In Our Voice and Service In Our Heart.”
TO THE WOMEN OF DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INCORPORATED
As a proud active member of the Divine Nine, I know the undeniable power of sisterhood. As Black women, we have a bond. Our shared experience has taught us that we are better together. This is why I have taken pleasure in developing this celebration of your sisterhood.
As I observe the women of DST today, the joyful sisterhood, powerful voices and commitment to service in all you do are as evident as they are inspiring.
When President and CEO Beverly Smith discussed the legacy she hopes to ignite by commissioning this special edition quilt exclusively for her sorors, she spoke of the past with fulfillment and of the future with confidence and pride.
I want to personally thank her and the women of Delta Sigma Theta for such an amazing opportunity.
