Community Service


Here is a link to the national ASG website with a list of current Community Service Projects:



Giving back is a vital part of a full and rewarding life. Nothing is more fulfilling than using your skills and passion to contribute to the qualify of life of others in need within your own community. Throughout the country, ASG has become synonymous with sewing acts of kindness.

2018 Blue Star Mothers Holiday Stocking

The Las Vegas ASG "Charity Sew" in 2018 is to make stockings for our deployed military troops who will not be home to share the holidays with family and friends. We work in conjunction with the Henderson & Boulder City, Nevada, Blue Star Mothers who arrange the donations to fill the stockings. The Blue Star Mothers was founded in 1942 as part of a movement to provide packages to our military serving overseas. They also provide assistance to family members who encounter hardships as a result of their son, daughter, wife or husband serving in the war.

2014 Anti-Ouch Pouch by Deon Maas

The Anti-Ouch Pouch is a pillow that hangs from the shoulder, fitting snugly under the arm to cushion the area after breast surgery or during radiation treatment. The wedge shape gently holds the arm away from the body when the user is standing. The strap holds the pillow in place without having to use sore arm muscles to “clutch” it. The strap is adjustable and the fiberfill may be adjusted via the overlapped opening.
