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 our quilts. http://www.washonaji.org/
