Clifford quilters have global reach

CLIFFORD – President Agnes Norris notes The Sharing Our Faith Quilters group  has received a warm response to news of the group’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2019.

The group meets every second Wednesday from September to May from 10am to about 3:30pm. The month of December is taken off for a Christmas break.

Although 50 years ago some quilts were custom quilted, the group has moved to all tied quilts, which is easier to learn, allowing the group to make more quilts for distribution.

Members Bonnie Koeslag, Sharon Kaufman and Becky Koeslag set up a quilt display in the John Webb Room on the third floor of the library in Harriston.

They encourage everyone to stop by and take a peek at the quilts through five decades.

On Sept. 11, the group met at Knox to tie quilts and celebrate their 50th. Becky Koeslag decorated a cake for the anniversary.

The quilters’ outreach stretches across Ontario and Canada, to the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Russia.

The group welcomes anyone interested in quilting to stop by their next meeting.
