Learn, be inspired, and have fun with us!

Sharing information about sewing and meeting new friends are some of the assets of our Neighborhood Groups (NGs). Members may attend any and all NGs. Non-member may attend two meetings before being required to join ASG - so give us a try!


Contact the group leader to let her know you will be joining us. And bring your Show and Tell - we love sharing our passion for sewing! Oh, bring any sewing questions or challenges, too - we also love giving each other creative input and lots of kudos!


Neighborhood Groups are listed below. Click here for our monthly listing of each group's program topic and chapter upcoming events.
