The Heritage Arts Center at Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern, 73 Monument Place, Heathsville is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
“Tis the season to visit the Heritage Arts Center in Heathsville,” said Linda Montross. “Tavern Quilt Guild members have been busy making quilts, table runners, place mats, bags, aprons and other useful and decorative items for sale in the TQG Studio.”
The TQG meets on first Tuesdays of each month at 10 a.m. at the Tavern, said Montross. The meeting includes TQG business, show and tell, a light lunch, a speaker with trunk show and, frequently, a workshop. New members are always welcome. To join, call Montross at 580-2250.
The Heritage Arts Center offers working artist studios, a gallery and a shop featuring original works by local artists and artisans.
In addition to TQG, the Tavern is home to a blacksmith guild, a spinners and weavers guild and a woodworkers guild.
