RUTH ANNE BONTREGER
Ruth Anne Bontreger has been involved in costuming for Fendig for about 20 years As a little girl she always played dress up and put on a play of some kind with her sisters and friends. Ruth Anne is able to enjoy that pleasure with the children during Fendig productions. She says with costumes, talent and music we can have a wonderful theatre experience. Ruth Anne enjoys working with directors and children encouraging them to develop their own gifts that bless themselves and others. She has had 8 grandchildren involved in Fendig over the years and is so grateful to give her time and talent for the stage. She is looking forward to another production this year with the kids.
Tricia Gastineau is a professional custom seamstress and operating Alamode Kabash Sewing Shop. Sewing “stylish” and “nonsense” alike. She learned to sew at a very early age and has always enjoyed creating & designing for the needs of others. Tricia has been sewing for the community since 1994 developing her craft and experience while raising her five children with husband, Jeff. Each of her children have participated in five productions each of Fendig.
Tricia has assisted her mother, Ruth Anne Bontreger, with Fendig costumes since 2000 and really enjoys being a part of this activity with her children helping to tell great stories on the stage. She thrives on the challenges to make extreme custom costumes for our actors which has given her so much more experience. Tricia looks forward to another exciting challenge for this years production.
