  • Newsletters
  • Website
  • Activities: tours, auctions, Chapter events to assist RWCS
  • Buy, Sell, Trade Red Wing pieces within the Chapter
  • Help each other acquire pieces for their collections
  • Have fellow collectors in your area to use as a knowledge base on Red Wing stoneware, dinnerware, and pottery

Chapter Meetings
Each Chapter contact has a mailing address, email, and phone so that anyone can contact them about upcoming Chapter Events. Every Chapter has a different meeting schedule and times they meet. At each Chapter meeting the agenda usually includes:

  • Chapter news
  • Announcements from the RWCS Business office
  • Chapter Commemorative updates
  • Chapter projects
  • Upcoming events

Many meetings are held in the private homes of members giving the host an opportunity to show their collection. In addition, Chapter members have the opportunity to show their latest find during a show and tell time. The meetings often include a meal or pot luck as well.
