COPS Days


Summer 2021 COPS Days and Sew-cials

We have Sew-cials via ZOOM on the day of our monthly guild meetings.

These run from 2 to 6 pm and the next one will take place after the summer break. All members are welcome to attend or simply drop in to say hi.  If you have any questions, please email sewcial@lionsgatequiltersguild.com.

Monthly COPS Days

Our next Saturday COPS Day will take place after the summer. We are assessing the COVID situation in the hope of being able to meet in person later in 2021.

This year we have been holding ZOOM COPS Day once a month. There is no charge for attending the ZOOM sessions. For now, only members may attend (unlike our in-person COPS Days). However, if you’re a member and would like to invite a friend, please email cops@lionsgatequiltersguild.com.

How it (normally) works (and will again post-COVID)

  • We sew from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm on a COPS Day with a break for a potluck lunch.
  • Bring everything you need to work on your project.
  • Sign up takes place at guild meetings.
  • Cost: $15 plus a plate of sweets or savouries to share.
  • If fewer than 15 people have signed up by the end of the meeting before the COPS Day, then it will be cancelled.
  • If the COPS Day goes ahead, drop-ins will be welcome.
  • If you are not able to come to the guild meeting and would like to sign up for a particular COPS Day, you can email the coordinator.
  • Non-members are welcome, however, first dibs goes to guild members!
