Anna Borntreger will display and describe Amish Quilting inside the Wabeno Logging Museum from 1pm to 2 pm —
Anna Borntreger is well known for her quilts and embroidery around the Bonduel and Shawano Amish community. When Anna’s husband Chris quit farming due to health issues, the Amish couple worked together on their company, CAB’s Quilts and Embroidery Co. Together they frequented area festivals and custom orders. After Chris passed a year ago, Anna continued their business but focused more on the custom work.
Anna makes whatever her customers want. Her moto is “any request is worth a try”, just as it says on her business cards. She has made quilts for people in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and of course, Wisconsin. Anna never throws away fabric. She always finds ways to make something whether purses, duffel bags,baby items, fridge towels and even cell phone covers. Anna loves to talk about her project’s and share how she makes them.
