The ASG organizes a variety of educational workshops, lectures and trunk shows throughout the year. Events vary from garment fitting, quilting, accessory sewing, using your serger and more. Typically the chapter hosts 2 or 3 nationally recognized sewing experts each year.

Enjoy Sewing Discounts

ASG members enjoy discounts at many local and national retailers, the Selvedge newsletter, Notions magazine, and check-out privileges at our private library. Check out all the benefits from our Retail Partners.

Share Your Skills Through Community Service

ASG members contribute to their communities by sewing a variety of garments, bags, and items for the military, children and others in need. These items are sewn by individuals, by Neighborhood Groups, and at the annual Make A Difference day.
