love to sew

With 25 local neighborhood groups we are sure to have a group near you. In fact, you are invited to attend any Neighborhood Group meeting before joining the American Sewing Guild to see what we are all about. All levels of experience are welcome. Read more about our Neighborhood Groups here.

DID YOU KNOW?

The American Sewing Guild was initially started in 1978 with the Indianapolis Chapter and the Denver Colorado Chapter!  This is where it all started!

Announcements

GroupWorks

Members receive announcements, event details, & other important information between Stitching Line issues via GroupWorks. It is vital that we have your correct email address because that’s how GroupWorks contacts you. If you aren’t receiving emails from GroupWorks, that usually means your email address is incorrect. Contact Christy Troxell at president@indyasg.org to correct.

2020 Annual Meeting Now On YouTube

The November 7, 2020 Annual Meeting of the Indianapolis Chapter has been uploaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. If you weren’t able to attend the meeting, here’s your chance to see both the business portion of the meeting & the special presentation afterwards. To view, click here.

Amazon Smile Rewards Program

Great news! You can now link Indy ASG to Amazon Smile. This is a WONDERFUL give-back program from Amazon that will help fund our community service projects. Every time you purchase something on Amazon, we get a percentage of your purchase at no additional cost to you. Amazon’s give-back program is similar to Kroger’s program…a percentage of your total purchase is donated to your favorite nonprofit. It’s really simple. Each time you make a purchase, go to Amazon Smile instead of Amazon.

The first time you go to Amazon Smile, you’re asked to select a charity to support. You’ll see a search field in the bottom right corner of the screen where you can type AMERICAN SEWING GUILD, INDIANAPOLIS CHAPTER. Select it as your charity and you are good to go! And to make set up even simpler, Amazon Smile has given us our own unique link. Click on this link and you won’t have to search for us: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/35-2065710

Kroger Community Rewards Program

We are now enrolled in Kroger’s charitable giving program called Community Rewards!  Please follow the directions below, sign up, & link your Kroger Card to American Sewing Guild Indianapolis Chapter. This is really fast and easy. Linking your card will not cost anything and will not increase your grocery bill.  Kroger puts money into a fund for us every time you swipe your Kroger Card. The funds we receive will be used for our community service projects.
.
To use the Kroger Community Rewards program:
Visit Kroger Community Rewards.
Log in to your Kroger account. (New users will need to create an account.)
Search for AMERICAN SEWING GUILD INDIANAPOLIS CHAPTER (or search for AH634).
Click ENROLL.
.
To participate, you must have a Kroger Card & an account. If you don’t have a card, you can get one at the customer service desk. Use your card the same day you pick it up to begin saving money on your purchases. You do not need an account to use your card when shopping, but you do need an account to earn money for us. Remember to swipe your Kroger Card (or use the phone number registered to your Kroger Card) when shopping for each purchase to count.

Community Service Opportunities

Kay Marcuson, Vice President – Community Service, invites you to join us at a Community Service Sewing Workshop, where you’ll have a choice of sewing quilts for St. Vincent Seton Hospital, March of Dimes “Lovey Hearts” for St. Vincent Women’s Hospital, and Christmas stockings for our troops. These workshops are in addition to each Neighborhood Group’s community sew days. All of your community sew projects contribute to helping others. We need you! Here are your opportunities to sew with other ASG members:
2021 dates will be announced below–in the Upcoming Events calendar–when we can safely resume our sewing workshops. In the meantime, please continue supporting your community service favorite(s) by sewing at home. We’d all love to see what you’re sewing! Please post photos of your projects on our Facebook group:
