Founded in 1985, the Ottawa Smockers’ Guild is committed to advancing the knowledge of smocking and related arts. Because we want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable, our organization and meetings are both very informal. Monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month from September to June in the McNabb Community Centre in Ottawa. All our meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. Membership is open to anyone interested in sharing or furthering their knowledge of smocking.
