Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Introduction to Corset Making

‚ÄčThis week-long, corset-making class, with artist instructor, Linda Sparks, is designed for those who have never made a corset before. Participants will need to know how to operate a sewing machine in order to take this class; consider our Introduction to Sewing course, if you have no experience. Corset expert and costumer Linda Sparks of Farthingales will teach you how to draft a waist-cincher corset based on your measurements. You’ll also get an opportunity to vary the pattern lines to customize the look. The instructor will fit your corset to you and advise you on how to tweak the pattern based on fitting issues you have. She will then guide you through the construction process and demonstrate the many types of bones available and how to use them.

Location: 20 Monteith Avenue, Stratford, 20 Monteith Avenue, Stratford
