  • Education with workshops, seminars and lectures. Classes are tailored to every sewing interest from couture sewing to stash management, from fitting and alterations to surface design and embellishment, from hand sewing to serger sewing, as well as every level of sewing skill.

ASG offers a Junior Membership to anyone through age 17 or, if holding a valid student ID, through age 22.

The Northern Virginia Chapter holds monthly meetings in our Neighborhood Groups at various times and locations. Members can attend them all.  Non-members may attend two meetings for free before you must join.  And, if there isn't a neighborhood group near you, we can help you start one yourself! Please browse our site for details on the latest events.
