Chapter List


 


Many ASDP members belong to a local chapter, which offers them an opportunity to participate in regular meetings with people in their area involved in various sewing and design professions. Chapters are affiliates of ASDP, and benefit from the groundwork the governance board has done to obtain tax exempt status in the United States. There is no requirement that a new member belong to a chapter, but participation is encouraged if there is one within a reasonable distance. Most members who take part in chapter events find their membership and businesses are enriched through the opportunities to learn from and interact with other members in person, and chapters offer these opportunities more frequently.

Thirteen local Association chapters serve members across the United States and British Columbia. Chapters meet regularly for activities ranging from visits to hard-to-access museum backrooms to local seminars with experts such as Kenneth King, Helen Joseph Armstrong, Susan Khalje, Claire Shaeffer, the late Fred Bloebaum and others. Visit our Chapter Events page to see what our chapters are up to. Visitors are welcome at most chapter meetings (a nominal fee may be charged).

Belonging to a chapter is a rich and very rewarding experience. For more information on joining a chapter in your area, please contact the chapter representatives listed below. If there is no chapter in your area, our Vice President - Chapter Relations may be able to help you network with other sewing professionals in your area to start a chapter. Contact chapterrelations@sewingprofessionals.org.
