THE WEDNESDAY GROUP
These ladies are knitters, crocheters, sewers, cross-stichers, needle pointers,
or anything that has to do with a needle. Their experience allows them to help out others. The ladies also
help out many local charities such as the Community Center in Amherstburg, the Hiatus House and The Richmond Nursing
home. The Wednesday Group meets every week from 1pm to 3:30pm. The cost each week is $1.00. If you are interested,
contact the Gibson Gallery at 736-2826 between 11am-5pm.
The Heritage Quilters group was created to honour
the historic building, The Gibson Gallery, and to
reflect the heritage of our town. Novice and experienced quilters meet here once a month to compare ideas and techniques,
show off their projects and get advice and to enjoy
each other’s company. Call the Gallery 519-736-2826 for more info.
The Artist Station is
a guild open to all members of the Gallery who desire a relaxing, inviting, well lit atmosphere to create their artwork. Novice
