About the Greater Seattle ASG chapter

Do you have sewing friends? We’re happy to say we have ~250 sewing friends in and around Seattle and the Greater Eastside. We have many events, meetings, and learning opportunities for members. Be sure to check out the calendar on the home page, and join us real soon!

We’re an all-volunteer club, with an active board. Contact us if you’d like to volunteer or visit a meeting.

Community Service

Community service is an important part of the ASG mission. Our chapter does charity mending for the Ronald McDonald House as an ongoing community service project, but there are many other opportunities to share your sewing talent for the community at large.

Get Credit! Whenever you work on an ASG Community Service Project, please record your efforts and send to our Community Service Chair. We report our hours to ASG national headquarters twice a year so they can track our chapter’s efforts.


Members, read all about it! Our chapter newsletter is Sew Crazy. Learn about upcoming events, what went on at a recent event, and generally get motivated to sew more!



We get together in person, too! Check out any of our Neighborhood and Special Interest Groups.
