Neighborhood Groups

Sharing information about sewing and meeting new friends are some of the assets of our Neighborhood Groups (NGs). Our members may attend any NGs meeting. Feel free to bring a guest!

Non-members wishing to learn more about ASG can visit two (2) NG meetings before joining our Chapter. If you have any questions about a meeting, please contact the NG Leader listed for that group.

  • FitNice Girls   

Only for those who attended the Judy Kessinger workshop held in Fort Wayne in September, 2018 or those who have purchased her system at another time. We work together to make new pattern variations, then cut out our fabric and take it home to sew and to bring back the next month for Show & Tell! We address fit, fashion, fabric choice and design options, all using Judy's Master Top or Master Pants patterns.
