Exhibit Extended!poster image of Exhibit Stitched Together

Flashback to 1918! The Great War is still raging in Europe, conscription has come into full force, Wellington County women are hard at work on the home front, and the Riverside Women's Institute has just completed a fundraising signature quilt for the Canadian Red Cross. This quilt intertwines the lives of 711 people from Guelph, Eramosa and Nichol Townships, documenting this community as it existed one hundred years ago.

Visit Stitched Together to discover the many stories hidden behind the quilt.
