“Each One Teach One”
Quilt Documentation Day is Coming!
The Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild
Contact our Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild Historian (email@example.com) to be added to the schedule.
Documentation is limited to 50 quilts
5 quilts per person.
CrossPurpose is similar to the Red Shield in its purpose, but the facility is brand new. The facility is easy to find and
we’re confident the Colorado Quilting Council team will enjoy the day.
As always, the guild will provide morning coffee and a great lunch.
*We plan to be there early to set up and place signage.
We Have a New Link to Denver Metro Quilt Stores

The objective of the Guild is to embody a viable, professional organization representing an interest in quilt making and other fiber arts primarily from an African-American perspective.
We both educate ourselves and share our knowledge in the art of quilt making and other fiber arts by promoting the theme “Each One Teach One”.
We seek to promote the work and accomplishments of our members and to preserve the tradition, culture and history of quilting.
We enjoy, rather than judge each other’s work.

The Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild was formed in February 1994 by Helen Kearney Thobhani.
The five African American women who came together were interested in perpetuating the heritage of quilting and promoting fellowship among those in quilting.
The Guild is committed to supporting and educating the community. To this end, the Guild offers exhibits, quilting classes, lectures and quilt documentation through its various programs during the year.
The name Wa Shonaji comes from the Swahili language and means literally – “people who sew”. The Guild’s name reflects both our region of the United States and our cultural heritage.
The members of RMWSQG, though predominantly of African-American ancestry, celebrate ethnic diversity in membership as well as in the many different patterns displayed in their quilts.
