Panama Canal Quilters

The Panama Canal Quilters is a group of women 6 to 8 who have been quilting since 2002. These talented women get together at the studio of Carol Skinner in Albrook and share philosophies, exchange stories, camaraderie, recipes and food while producing works of art in the form of quilts.

One of the artist members, Gaenor Speed, runs a foundation that provides assistance for many Panamanians to get ahead in life. Gaenor’s work inspired the Panama Canal Quilters to become actively involved in charitable works. Currently the group is raising funds to support a University of Panama, third year Pharmacy Student, Julio Cesar Wong.
