COPS Days


What is a COPS Day?

COPS = Creative Ongoing Project Session
Finish up those UFOs, start a new project, get help with a project, see what others are working on, and engage in some social quilting! Questions? Contact the Coordinator.


2021 Fall/Winter COPS Days (via Zoom)

We are assessing the COVID situation in the hope of being able to meet in person from January 2022. There is no charge for attending the Zoom sessions. For now, only members may register to 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. Reminders will be sent around 10 days before each COPS Day and the Zoom link will be sent to those who have signed up a day or two beforehand. If you do not receive the link, please check your junk folder before contacting cops@lionsgatequiltersguild.com.
