Margaret Froese was inspired to become a quilter during the years she and her family spent with the Hopi people in Arizona. The designs and colorful quilts that were hand-stitched from scraps at that small mission church never ceased to amaze her. For the past 30 years, Margaret has enjoyed the challenge of making scraps quilts for a personal collection and for fundraising quilts at the Material Resources Centre at Plaza Dr.

Lori Hiebert has been playing with fabric and fibre since she was two years-old. And over the next six decades has picked up a variety of ideas and techniques. Since retiring from teaching nearly seven years ago, Lori has enjoyed quilting, knitting, weaving and more.

Darlene Hiebert, on behalf of Verna Hiebert
Verna Hiebert had been sewing since she was a young girl but she began to quilt when she worked alongside many expert quilters at MCC in the 1980s. Verna learned to be a skilled, precise hand quilter and worked on many of the MCC raffle quilts over the years. Although Verna was unable to quilt in her last years, she gave us many treasures that will be shared.

Norma Wiens generally tries to be a good person who loves piecing fabric scraps into usable, cozy, and snuggly quilts. She was introduced to sewing through 4-H at an early age. However, quilting came much later on and Norma says she's very happy that it did. Quilting is not only one of her favourite things to do, but the "family of friends" that surrounds the craft is the greatest of all!
