We are sewing enthusiasts who meet together for programs, fellowship, and the sharing of inspiration.
There's nothing as stimulating to creativity like seeing what your friends have been making!
Upcoming chapter meeting dates:
Harmony Presbyterian Church
400 E. Boardwalk Dr., Fort Collins
6:30 pm: Meet and greet

General ASG Chapter meetings are every third Wednesday of the month, September through May
Prospective members are welcome to attend two meetings free (chapter meetings or neighborhood sewing groups) to meet other members and see what the chapter is involved in.
After the second meeting, you can join the chapter on-line through the National American Sewing Guild website, or by filling out an application and mailing it in. At the ASG website, you will also see what the national membership provides you: discounts, on-line classes, and connections to other sewing enthusiasts!

We're gearing up for more charitable sewing and we hope that our members will keep alert to needs, especially for use in our community.
Current and past projects include scent cloths for newborns at Poudre Valley Hospital, bedding for the Johnstown Inspire YMCA Preschool, customized sheets, pillowcases, and toiletry bags for homeless women, padded hangers for the CSU Avenir Museum, book caddies for school children, Choose to Reuse bags for the City of Fort Collins, carry bags for the Days for Girls charity, and the prep and construction of walker hanging bags for local senior citizens.
***Although there may be a few chapter members who are professional seamstresses, we are primarily a group of recreational sewing enthusiasts. People that are seeking someone to sew for them should consult www.sewingprofessionals.com or do an internet search for local tailors.
