Meet Anita Starbuck
Anita Starbuck was ready for a change of pace in her life in 2007. In her pursuit of warmer, sunnier weather and a more relaxed lifestyle, she decided to move to Ashcroft from Gibsons. She felt immediately welcomed by the community and its friendly people
Anita has been an avid quilter for several years. While she relished the quiet, laid-back atmosphere of Ashcroft, as a quilter, she was frustrated to find that there was no place in town to purchase quilting supplies. Instead, the full-time worker and part-time student would have to drive all the way to Kamloops to find what she needed to fuel her hobby. She hated the time that it took out of her busy schedule, and it seemed that no matter how much she stocked up in town, she would invariably run out of something and eventually have to drive back to Kamloops.
In the meantime, Anita was becoming familiar with the local quilting community. In fact, she discovered that there were more quilters than she expected and that there were a number of quilters guilds in the area in and around Ashcroft, including Cache Creek and Logan Lake. Many of its members lived in outlying areas like Spences Bridge where there was also no access to quilting supplies. With this in mind, she decided to take action and open up her own quilting business. She currently runs her shop out of her home two days each week (while still working and going to school), and she is thrilled that she no longer has to make the onerous trip to Kamloops for supplies. Her quilting comrades have expressed their own gratitude to her for making such a valuable service available right here in Ashcroft.
Creative. Inspiring. Artsy.
