Welcome to the Walnut Creek/East Bay Chapter of the American Sewing Guild

A Brief History: We received our charter to ASG in 1987 after a group of ladies who had been meeting as a sewing group for many years decided to join this national organization of home sewers. Presently we have over 155 members.

Our Chapter Now: Currently we have three neighborhood groups that meet each month. Below is the upcoming schedule for our general meetings, usually held on the fourth Saturday of the month. You may now prepay for the meeting by using your Paypal account. See below.
