Learn, be inspired, and have fun with us!



You may attend two neighborhood group meetings before you would be 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! 


Below you will find our neighborhood group project schedules. Take a look and join us!
