About ASG

The American Sewing Guild (lovingly shortened to simply “ASG”) is a national network of chapters and special (sewing) interest groups that meet regularly. The organization’s mission is advancing sewing as an art and life skill. Tall order, right? Well, not for sewing enthusiasts like us.

The ASG is headquartered in Houston, TX but local chapters are all over the United States. Ours meets in Cedar Rapids, and we have members who live all around Eastern Iowa – from Iowa City to Waterloo and beyond.

Learn sewing, teach sewing, volunteer, develop or enhance your leadership and community development skills, travel (for sewing, natch), and have fun – we have something for everyone and every stage of life.
