Thelma Johnson and the Quatro Ladies of the Philippines
Sometimes it’s the story as much as the work itself that is the draw.
Thelma Johnson, from nearby Cumberland traveled to the Philippines three years ago to volunteer at an orphanage. While there, she had the inspiration to teach some of the moms to sew in order to make better lives for themselves and their children. Now, they produce hundreds of aprons to sell, and Thelma (at age 83) returns several times a year to supply them with fabric and sewing machines. She’s an amazing person!
