Quilts for Survivors of Residential Schools
As part of our commitment to reach out to local first nations people, OVQG have made 27 quilts for the Westbank First Nations survivors of residential school system and other trauma. We have also make 8 additional Quilts for Survivors for the interior of BC.
The quilts will be a part of a gifting ceremony at the Westbank First Nations, September 29th. Quilters are welcome to come. The ceremony will be held in the afternoon at the Community Services Building, 1900 Quail Lane, Westbank.
Orchard Valley Quilters Guild would like to thank the City of Kelowna for there support through Arts and Culture Program Funding. Thanks to the Rotary Centre for the Arts for displaying the Quilts for Survivors in the Summer, 2023.
