Becky Scupin holds up a quilt during a meeting last year of the Pieceful Hearts Quilters Guild at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in North Augusta. This year, the group is celebrating its 25th year and currently has more than 125 members. The group opened its exhibit, The Bag Ladies, at the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta on Tuesday. The exhibit features purses, bags and anything that carries something members have made over the years. Winning quilts from past Pieceful Hearts shows are also included. Janet Sterzen has a vintage purse display in the exhibit. The exhibit will remain on display through Sept. 27. Read more about Sterzen's work in this month's Artist Spotlight on page 3.
