Chapter Events and Neighborhood Groups Meetings
At this time, the National ASG has suggested that chapters suspend chapter and neighborhood group meetings until it is safe for individuals to gather in groups again.
Should it be necessary to cancel upcoming chapter events/workshops we will notify enrolled participants and provide refunds.
The chapter website has been updated with planned monthly programming information provided by the Neighorhood Group leaders.
Community Service Project - Face Masks
Kansas City ASG member Phyllis Carlyle put together the following information for those interested in making face masks for local hospitals. Please click here to access the PDF Phyllis created which has been posted on the chapter website.
You are welcome to use this handout and pass it on. It is all about shareware provided through generosity for charity only, so please do not sell it or the items you make. Some of you may have seen these links and others. I’ve concentrated on:
-articles that answer my concerns about what to sew with and that DIY masks are not perfect but are better than nothing
-links to patterns and videos that I feel are concise and have good instructions
-paper patterns you can print and cut out. (Thanks, Wild Ginger software)
As a retired graphic designer with Adobe software, I created this using InDesign and have it available in universal PDF format, including links to the Internet.
Sewing friends, here's a chance to turn your stash into good. And heads up, I hear elastic is already getting hard to buy. I suggest that if you use bias ties or even ribbon, to make a version that ties at the back of the head instead of using ear loops.
Sanitizer, toilet paper, elastic. Who knew?
