NEW! Some groups are recording parts of their programs to our Zoom Cloud account. After Sandi is notified, the recording will be indefinitely posted to the Recorded Programs area of our Members Only page and for the remainder of 2021 on the NG/SIG page.


Groups sending their handouts, instructions and slideshows to Sandi will have them posted to their NG webpage. Members can download and save them as they will be removed and replaced with more current content when our storage limit is exceeded.

What is an NG? Its a Neighborhood Group!  

We are real people meeting in real buildings to sew real things. And we have a blast. So take a moment to step away from the world of virtual reality and mosey on down to your nearest NG. Better yet, bring a friend with you!  (We expect Meetings will resume in mid 2021)
