American Sewing Guild?



I am not sure why I never realized ASG even existed. When I was shopping at Nancy's Sewing Basket recently I picked up a brochure after I was informed from one of the employees that the store gives a discount to members. 
Well those who know me know that I am a girl who likes a bargain and I am in Nancy's frequently so an additional discount helps. I decided to do a little research and checked out the website, and found more information to share with the rest of you.

                                                    The American Sewing Guild

 is a membership organization that welcomes sewing enthusiasts of all skill levels and from many different walks of life. Chapters are located in cities all across the country and members meet monthly to learn new sewing skills, network with others who share an interest in sewing and participate in community service sewing projects. Membership in the Guild gives you an opportunity to experience your love of any type of home sewing with others who share your interest. Members can take advantage of:


  • Monthly meetings
  • Special workshops and events
  • Online Sewing Classes
  • Contests
  • Special offers from industry resources
  • Members-only magazine
  • Annual conference
  • Sewing-related travel and tours

And there is a Seattle Chapter. I do not think I will attend very many of the events as my schedule does not allow many extras but I am interested in the store discounts plus it supports sewing.
