Numerous Membership Benefits


The ASG has discount agreements with national chain retailers, including Hancock Fabrics and Jo-Ann Stores, allowing you to save every time you shop. Many local sewing retailers also offer special discounts to ASG members.

In addition, almost half of the advertisers in Notions, our quarterly national publication, also regularly offer discounts on their sewing products, publications and events, free shipping, and lots more. Those Special Offers are listed and updated every quarter on the password-protected Members Only section of this Web site.

Chapter Meetings

Think of a chapter as a community of people who are excited about sewing. All kinds of people! Some with advanced or professional sewing skills, some novices at the beginner level, and the majority who fall somewhere between those two levels. They want to learn new skills, they want sewing friends to share their successes and challenges, and they want to belong to a group that will support their adventures in sewing. 

Chapters come in all sizes - larger chapters often sponsor quarterly chapter-wide special events that may feature local or national speakers, member fashion shows, or specialty workshops. Some chapters also sponsor many smaller neighborhood or special interest groups within the larger structure which meet more frequently (usually monthly). Smaller chapters may meet on a monthly basis as one group. Often, these local Neighborhood Groups provide opportunities for sharing ideas and “hands-on” sewing experiences in a smaller, more social atmosphere.


ASG members pay a special member’s price for conference registration where attendees participate in workshops and seminars taught by nationally recognized professionals. Members may also shop the Exhibit Hall, enjoy special events and attend optional workshops and tours.

Every ASG member receives ASG "Notions" four times a year

Our quarterly publication contains articles written exclusively for us by the world's leading sewing experts, messages from the ASG Board of Directors and ASG National Headquarters, news of recent guild activities from chapters around the country, information about the latest sewing products and books, and a Chapter Calendar where individual chapters list their upcoming events. "Notions" also carries advertising from leading industry companies, many of whom offer special discounts to ASG members. In other words, it's chock full of everything sewers love!
