Why should I join?
Whether you’ve barely threaded a needle, been away from sewing for some time, or have your fair share (nay, closets full) of your custom creations, everyone will find inspiration here. Enthusiasm is contagious! We speak your language and won’t judge your overflowing stash of fabrics (in fact, we'll be eager to swap with you!)
Sewing is a life skill to be learned, cherished, and passed on. We value the practical and aesthetic qualities of this art and aim to share them with our community and the next generation.
An ASG membership has benefits built-in on multiple levels. The greatest benefit of membership is that you’ll be part of a community of sewing enthusiasts.
As an Individual, members enjoy…
Discounts to local sewing shops. How much do you spend on fabric and notions each year? Would a 10% (or more) discount help your sewing budget? Be sure to visit:
The best resource for national retailer discounts is the membership section at asg.org
Within our Local Chapter you'll find..
A circle of local sewing friends who have been there, stitched that, and some who could benefit from your unique experiences.
Monthly meetings, each with a new theme.
Connections to local instructors. Is your sewing machine way overdue for a cleaning? Learn how to do it yourself! Are you stuck on a special project and could use some guidance? Attend the Open Sewing lab! Check our newsletter for the latest in local class offerings.
Stitchin Times, our chapter’s award-winning monthly newsletter, keeps us up to date on all of these happenings.
On a National level...
A plethora of free online sewing tutorials! At last count, there were over 120 videos, each about an hour long, taking you from design to fruition and detailing every step along the way.
Do you like to travel? Attend a meeting anywhere in the states while you’re away, or visit their shops with your discount for a yard of souvenir material. If you love to travel, consider the annual ASG conference or annual Sew Much Fun excursion to a new scenic place somewhere in the world.
There’s also an opportunity to subscribe to Threads, a more in-depth apparel-sewing focused magazine, at a discounted rate.
