Pennia Ford's Quilt at the Ypsilanti District Library

Congratulations to Pennia Ford! Her hand-sewn quilt "Up From African to America" is on display at Ypsilanti District Library until January 30, 2009.

She has lived in Ypsilanti since 1995. Ford, now retired, was a Reading Specialist who traveled and taught in Belgium, Israel, Egypt, Malawi, and Gambia. Her quilts focus on family, country and history themes. Enjoy!

Ms. Ford has made several quilts dealing with the African American experience. Her focus has been on AA women. She is a delightful 80 year old lady with many interesting stories.
