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.
