Advancing sewing as an art and life skill….

…is what the American Sewing Guild (ASG) is all about. I completely double-♥ this wonderful organization, and am so glad to be associated with it. I think I have been a member for at least 10 years, but my memory is not super reliable with those kind of details. Too many children – destroyed some of those brain cells, you know. 😉

There are so many great benefits to belonging to ASG. I have met some of my favorite people thru this organization, taken classes sponsored by my chapter and others nearby, improved my sewing skills by quantum leaps, and enjoyed endless camraderie and laughter with my sewing sisters. And there is some goodness-mojo too. Every year a new charitable project is selected by the national organization, and members spend many hours each year sewing for good causes. In addition, individual chapters, neighborhood groups, or individuals can (and do!) contribute their time and creativity to any needy organizations that they have a heart for. Anyone who loves to sew is welcome as an ASG member, and if you haven’t joined yet, I hope you will soon.

Ooops! I better sign off. I need to finish packing for my annual fall retreat with my sewing sisters. Wish you were coming along!

Happy sewing!

Maris Olsen
