For this season, so long as public health recommendations allow it, we plan to offer in-person meetings when possible at our previous location of St. Marks (1606 Fisher Ave). We will continue to offer an on-line options for each and every meeting, regardless of the status of the in-person meeting.

As a guild we would like to ensure as many people as possible can feel safe attending in person meetings. As such, and following the recent recommendations from Ottawa Public Health, we will be requiring masks for any in-person meetings. If you arrive without one, we will provide you with a free one.

Pay-it-forward memberships

If a membership fee is a luxury that you cannot afford this year, please send an email to so we can work together to help accommodate your membership in the guild. We very much want to include as many people as possible, and recognize your right to privacy and discretion in making these requests.

For those of you who wish to, we are continuing to give members the option of adding on a donation to the pay-it-forward fund when they purchase their membership. These donations give the Guild funding to provide memberships and workshop or event registration fees to individuals in financial need.

What does my membership pay for?

The Ottawa Garment Guild is a non-profit organization, and all of our executive members are dedicated volunteers. Your membership fee allows us to pay for our meeting space and online infrastructure, invite special guest speakers, and put on special events throughout the year. Funds collected through membership fees may also be used towards things that help us make meetings better for you; such as a projector for meetings, website maintenance, and incorporating the guild as an official non-profit entity.
