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.
