A quilt of our own

Almost 10 years later, Ashcroft gets its own quilt.

Joyce Deering, Pat Brown, Jeanne Joss and Barney Craggs from the local Cactus Strippers Quilt Guild presented a replica of the Bifuka quilt to Ashcroft Council at the Apr. 8 meeting. The guild presented the original quilt to Council in July 2004 as a gift to Bifuka. The Guild has been working on the replica since 2008.

Guild members Judy Service, Zelda Matkea, Pearl Taylor, Val Jewesbury, Gloria Duncan, Marilyn Bueckert, Shirley Holowchuk, Gerda Rieck, Judy Davison and Sandy Reed also worked on the quilt.
