Welcome to the New ASG Online Library!

For those of you here who are interested in my fashion and sewing exploits, I am also a board member and webmaster of the Atlantic Sewing Guild.

I just started an online library of fashion and sewing documents for them on ISSUU (website and app), and shared the news with them via the post linked above.

Please go see if it might be useful to you as well!
