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)
