Sewing and Politics
Members of the Oakville Sewers Forum may be pleased to know that Rob Burton was re-elected mayor and Ralph Robinson re-elected councillor for Ward 1. Both Burton and Robinson are the architects of the QEP Community Centre which will house the first creative arts facility for the Town of Oakville. If all goes as planned, the Oakville Sewers Forum and other fibre arts groups will have a home in the facility to be known as the Fibre Arts Room. The Fibre Arts Room will be equipped with electrical outlets to handle several sewing machines and irons. The separate "wet room" will be equipped for dyeing, felting, washing and drying fabrics and other fibres. The facility is currently scheduled to open in 2012. Oakville has sadly been very behind its neighbours Burlington and Mississauga in creating an centre for visual arts.
