Meetings

Monthly Meetings 

Meetings are held monthly on the 4th Sunday of the month. See the meeting dates below to see the location/time for each month. There historically were no meetings in July or August but we enjoyed meeting in the Beuna Vista park in those months during Covid-19. We will poll our membership to see if that is of interest to continue.

Regular Meetings are held at the Sobeys Stonebridge Community Room(3100 Preston Ave S). The meetings run from 2-4 p.m. and typically include an Icebreaker, Educational Topic, Book/Blog/Bolt, and Show & Tell.

Sew Days are held at the Home Inn & Suites in Stonebridge (253 Willis Crescent). Sew Days are Come and Go from ~9 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a Lunch Break at 12pm and Meeting from 2-4pm.

If Covid-19 restrictions are in place, we will meet virtually at 2 p.m. We likely will substitute sew days for regular meetings if our budget permits, in order to make up for lost sew days.

Non-Members are welcome to attend Sew Days for a $10 charge if there is space available. Please RSVP ahead of time.

New Members: Come to 2 meetings before deciding if membership is right for you.
