Connecting Through Art

Bringing creative people together for creative fun in a judgment-free space

WHRL’s Community Craft Circle – Wednesdays from 1-3 pm

Our Community Craft Circle brings creative people together to make stuff in a laid-back, fun, and judgment-free space. Everyone is welcome, from seasoned makers to those just beginning to dabble.

Bring your knitting, crochet, embroidery, quilt squares, scrapbooking, drawing – whatever creative thing you’re working on and join us at WHRL weekly on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 pm.  There is no commitment required; join us whenever you feel like it!

Join us if you:

  • want to commit to making time to be creative;
  • wish to spend time with friends, new and old, in a fun way;
  • would like to work among others who inspire and encourage you;
  • or want to spend a couple of hours creating something beautiful with your hands.

If MSAD#37 schools (Milbridge, Harrington region) are closed due to snow/ice, we will not meet – join us the following week!

Giving– it's the Maine thing to do.
