[Hampton Roads American Sewing Guild]

Community Service

Throughout the country, ASG has become synonymous with charitable acts of Sewing. The list below from National is a guide to many Community Service Projects you might like to sew. Please be aware that our projects might require different sizes to those in this list.

Community Service, although not a requirement by National, is a very rewarding expression of our love of sewing. Being able to give to our community by contributing to the quality of life of others in need, has become intrinsic to the Hampton Roads Chapter. This is done through a wide variety of projects, helping many hospitals, shelters and charity raffles.

A chapter can decide to do a chapter-wide project and/or neighborhood groups can initiate projects on their own.

Community Service Update

The Community Service section of our chapter is made possible due to the sharing of the time and talents of our members. Please know that each of the items you make are appreciated by the community we serve.

Ladies, thank you for all the hard work you do for the Community. I am the numbers keeper, you're the heart of the Community Service program.

Please pin, staple or affix firmly to items you turn in a note with your NAME, name of GROUP, NUMBER and KIND of ITEM, and DATE submitted. Often the items reported to me by e-mail are turned in well after the fact. This helps to avoid counting items twice, or being unable to determine who made them.
