Advancing sewing as an art and life skill

The American Sewing Guild is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sewing as creative, rewarding activity for all.


Update, 2/8/2021: Our virtual meeting tomorrow is with Maxine Steadman, who will talk about clothing adjustments for people with disabilities: How to alter existing clothing and favorite patterns to create garments that help individuals with challenges stay more independent; easy access and pain-free dressing: snap closures for easy caregiver-assisted dressing; dignified dressing; and easy wear and care.


This meeting will take place online via Zoom. The link will be emailed to all GRASG members. If you are not yet a GRASG member, please contact us for the link; we'd love to have you join the meeting!


In addition, photos from last month's Zoom meeting with Joel Forrest of Circle JF Saddlery in Fruitport, Michigan, discussing basic leatherworking tools, supplies and techniques are posted to the Photos section of our website.
