Visitors Welcome!


 TOPIC: Machine Feet


All in person Chapter Meeting and NG Meetings remain cancelled at this time to reduce the transmission of Covid 19 (Corona Virus) in our community. 

We expect to resume Meetings in mid 2021


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 30 days on the NG/SIG page along with any handouts that are received.


Groups sending their 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)
