A note about using # with the ASG name:
If you want to share content associated with the “brand name” of the American Sewing Guild please begin using #americansewingguild. By using our full name in your hashtag it will bring your content to the attention of others in the sewing community and help them recognize us as a non-profit sewing organization. 
If you are posting to social media- please don’t use the hashtag #asg. There is a company that makes guns named Airsoft and they use #asg for airsoft guns. They have been using it for a long time. I’m sure they are a bit confused by the random sewing posts that end up in their feed. So if you are using Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc, please spell out #americansewingguild. Hashtags have no spaces. Using a specific phrase in your hashtag means it is less likely to be used by or confused with other non-sewing organizations that also may use the letters “asg” incidentally in their hashtags. (Hashtags are not owned, bought or paid for). By using #asgLasVegasConference, #asgFabricContest, #ChapterSpringFling2018 or #2018CharitySew, these examples would target something very specific that will happen in the next few months and allow participants to share their experiences after the activity.

ASG has started using an app called MyGrove to share about ASG events and activities.  Phoenix is the first Chapter added!

MyGrove provides a way for online sharing, to keep everyone informed and up to date, as well as share photos, videos, ideas, and information. The site is very cell phone friendly.

Since MyGrove is by INVITATION ONLY, you need to receive the email with a link to Sign-In. Click on the blue letters in the email (that’s the computer link).  This will take you to the Sign-In page where you will change the temporary password (in the email) for one of your choosing. 

If you are an ASG Phoenix member and you did not get this email, please check your spam or junk folder. 

If you still did not get it, please contact us to re-send it at webmaster@phoenixasg.org.

                                       

We are the Phoenix Chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG).

The American Sewing Guild is a national non-profit organization dedicated to people who believe sewing is a rewarding and creative experience. 
Their motto is Advancing Sewing as an Art and Life Skill.
The link to the ASG national website is:  www.asg.org
Membership to the Guild is open to the public.  ASG members enjoy many benefits and discounts.

Neighborhood Groups
Members meet monthly in small groups to share ideas and new techniques.  Members “drag and brag” their latest creations to the meetings to share them with the group.

Membership Benefits
ASG members enjoy discounts at many local and national retailers, the Selvedge Newsletter, and Notions Magazine.  Check out all the benefits on our Membership Benefits Page.

Community Service
ASG members contribute to their communities by sewing a variety of garments, bags, and items for the military, children, and others in need.  These items are sewn by individuals and Neighborhood Groups.
