Welcome

The American Sewing Guild is an organization with chapters nationwide. The Sacramento Chapter is happy to advance sewing as an art and life skill and serves the area around Sacramento in Northern California. The Sacramento Chapter has approximately 300 members that meet in neighborhood groups for a geographical area or for a special interest. The groups meet monthly and provide programs and projects to assist each other with learning more about sewing, to create community service projects, or just to enjoy the company of others who sew. You may join the American Sewing Guild online and designate Sacramento as your chapter. As a chapter member, you may attend any of our neighborhood groups.

Magic Travel Scarf Workshop
with Gina Harrold

Registration Starts July 12th

Have you ever wanted an accessory you can wear with multiple outfits?  Travel with less while adding more to your look?  Well, you might want to give the Magic Travel Scarf a try.  This scarf is great for using up your fat quarters and scraps. The hardest part of this project is deciding in what order to arrange your fabric pieces.


This will be a hands-on sewing experience where you will sew your fabric pieces together to form a scarf with a surprise feature. 


Register Here By August 29th!
