Community Service Project
ASG North Jersey Chapter is part of the American Sewing Guild, a national non-profit organization dedicated to people who believe sewing is a rewarding and creative activity. Our membership is concentrated in the upper third of New Jersey and over the border in NY.
Neighborhood Groups (NG) are the heart of ASG. They offer members the opportunity to share and learn about a variety of sewing related subjects in small, supportive groups. All skill levels, from beginners to seasoned sewers, are welcome! ASG North Jersey currently has four NGs. Members are welcome to participate in as many NGs as they like.
If you are interested in becoming an ASG member, come visit us. You can attend two NG meetings as a guest before becoming a member.
