Join the ASG
The American Sewing Guild (ASG) is a national non-profit membership organization that supports sewing as an art and life skill. Membership is only $40 a year, an amount that more than pays for itself through the great discounts at fabric stores, an informative monthly newsletter, and access to a daily listserv. DC currently does not have its own chapter of the ASG (the nearest local chapter is Maryland), but there several ASG neighborhood groups in the area. For more information see the ASG website: www.asg.org.
As an added benefit, ASG members get in automatically to the DC Threads Sewing Lounge sessions!! That means no waiting list! Just contact us with your ASG number and we’ll look forward to seeing you at the lounge.
