Our Neighborhood Groups (NGs)

Neighborhood Groups (NGs) are the heart of our Chapter. We have five of them. Each offers an informal opportunity for "hands on" sewing experiences, friendly support and a meet-up with other guild members to exchange sewing ideas and information. Members may "join" (participate in) as many NGs as they can fit into their schedule!

The quilt hanging below was made by and dedicated to the members of the Sew What's New Neighborhood Group that met in Sarasota. The NG disbanded in Jan 2019 due to venue changes, loss of leadership and member health issues.
