 We have important and exciting news from Stephen Lewis Foundation about the progress of the 20th Anniversary Quilt.

Currently the quilt is in Kitchener-Waterloo and is in the final stages of completion. What is exciting to know is that not only one of our quilted leaves has been stitched onto the tree design but our quilted border piece (called The River of Life) is now installed as part of the border.  A special thankyou to Linda Lindberg, our quilter, for her beautiful  handwork.

It is truly an honour for our Richmond Hill Hands and Hearts for Africa group to be an integral part of this historic quilt. As we approach the quilt's completion on May 24, get ready to celebrate the creativity and collaboration of African and Canadian grandmothers who lovingly put this together.
