Cariboo Calico Quilters donating bags and quilts

Always looking for new members

The Cariboo Calico Quilters have been busy.

They have donated over 30 quilts so far to wildfire victims and there will be more, according to Laurel Murray.

Furthermore, their members have made bags which, along with food, they’re donating to the Women’s Centre.

The guild has been active for over 30 years and are always looking for new members. They meet every Monday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the last Friday of the month from noon to 8 p.m. for a pizza night in the Creekside Senior Centre basement.
