The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild has been presented with a wonderful opportunity to both continue to enjoy what we love, and offer support to a well deserved charity project. Through the husband of one of our members who works in Africa, we have the opportunity to sew quilts for some Ghanaian children of the Jesus Is King Orphanage in Western Ghana, West Africa. The orphanage is lovingly run by a Samuel Bangura and his wife Becky, and they are blessed with as many as 24 children between the ages of four and 14.
Quilts will be transported and hand delivered to the children on our behalf. We hope our quilts will be welcomed with as much enthusiasm, and love as they are being sewn with.
