American Sewing Guild sets first-time chapter meetings


Fort Wayne Chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG) will hold a series of monthly meetings open to the public featuring educationa­l and inspiring talks, demos and trunk shows.

Beginning March 16, meetings will be held the third Thursday of the month from 1-4 p.m. at the

UAW Local 2209 Union Hall, 5820 East 900 North, Roanoke, IN (near the GM plant). There is no admission charge.

At the first meeting on March 16 there will be a demonstrat­ion of how to make a wall organizer using clear plastic for storing thread or fat quarters. This unique organizer was designed by a member and features covers over the individual pockets to keep dust away. Instructio­ns will be provided at the meeting and there will be a follow-up sew-in for making the organizer.

Topics for upcoming meetings include sewing machine maintenanc­e from Edwards Sewing Center, and fabric scrap management with everyone participat­ing in building a ‘Stash Busting’ quilt block. For informatio­n about the chapter meetings, contact the guild at asgftwayne­
