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 very social quilting! Questions? Contact the Coordinator.


If you’re not receiving COPS REMINDERS, please provide your details to be sure you get them. No need to sign up if you’re already getting them!

An information/registration REMINDER will be sent out around 10 – 14 days before each COPS Day. If we don’t have enough sign-ups to cover the hall rental, we will meet via ZOOM and a link will be sent to those who have signed up a day or two beforehand. If you do not receive an email or link, please check your junk folder before contacting the COPS Coordinator at cops@lionsgatequiltersguild.com.

Recent COPS Days

July – Summer COPS Day in Lions Bay: It was so good to get together in person again! Check out our Facebook Page for photos (members only).June COPS Day: A quick mystery make turned out to be a ridiculously easy Kleenex holder. Or, using 5″ squares, a coaster/wine marker! This “1 o’clock something” was presented by Penny.

May COPS Day: Our “1 o’clock something” again featured a mini tute from Carolann, this time it was the Zippy Wallet (a free Noodlehead tutorial).

April COPS Day: In April, guild member Carolann showed us how to make a Snap Bag using pieces of metal tape measures for the open/close mechanism! An addictive make! Thanks, Carolann!

March COPS Day: Our March “1 o’clock something” featured guild member Margaret who demo’ed how to make a little crane ornament from a 5 1/2″ fabric square, some ribbon and a little stuffing. It was a fun session, thank you Margaret!

February COPS Day: For the “1 o’clock something” in our February 12 session, Daryl Aitken, owner of the fabulous Fabric Spark took us on a fabulous tour of her store on the Danforth in Toronto, and gave attendees a discount for anything ordered that weekend. Many thanks, Daryl!
