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!
All Fort Collins Chapter meetings will be held virtually until further notice. This may or may not include in-person neighborhood group meetings (at the discretion of the neighborhood group leader). Additional information on the resumption of meetings will be posted as soon as it is determined.
Upcoming virtual chapter meeting dates:

You can find us at focoasg to see work from chapter members. https://instagram.com/focoasg or focoasg on Instagram.
Prospective members are welcome to attend two meetings free (chapter meetings or neighborhood 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 membership provides you: discounts, on-line classes, and connections to other sewing enthusiasts!
