Welcome to the Indianapolis Chapter of the American Sewing Guild!
Our chapter consists of 200+ members from 10 central Indiana counties. Our members are sewing enthusiasts of all skill levels and represent a variety of sewing interests. We are eager to share our expertise and knowledge of sewing with others!
Our chapter is a part of the larger American Sewing Guild, and our chapter consists of many smaller Neighborhood Groups (NGs). The Indianapolis Chapter has 16 NGs that meet monthly at different times and different locations. The program for each NG is planned by the NG participants and addresses the sewing interests of that specific NG. As an American Sewing Guild member, you are welcome to visit and participate in any of our NGs as your schedule allows…we have groups that meet in the morning, afternoon, and evening. A list of Neighborhood Groups is here.
We hope you join the American Sewing Guild and take advantage of what the national organization offers to sewing enthusiasts and what the Indianapolis Chapter of the American Sewing Guild in particular offers you to support your interest and enthusiasm for sewing.
