About the American Sewing Guild (ASG)

The American Sewing Guild (ASG) is made up of Chapters, Neighborhood Groups and Members at Large. Local chapters host social events such as fashion shows and sewing fairs and many do sewing-related service projects for their community. The national website offers educational videos, projects and more. All members can increase their confidence, expand their skills, enjoy the annual conference and take advantage of discounts available only to members.

Central Illinois Chapter members are passionate about all things sewing.  Members can be as active as they wish with many opportunities to get together at neighborhood groups, special events, sewing days, and retreats. All levels of sewing skill are welcome and encouraged.  This group loves to share ideas, help each other with sewing challenges, and "show and tell" their beautiful results.

Prospective members are encouraged to attend two meetings before deciding about joining the chapter.  ASG members may attend any and all meetings in the Central Illinois Chapter and anywhere around the country.

Sew Special 

Each year our chapter invites sewing educators to teach us new techniques and shower us with inspiration in a two-day event called Sew Special usually held in the fall. 

Members and guests can attend a hands-on workshop, enjoy a delicious luncheon, see a trunk show of beautiful creations, or simply enjoy "talking sewing" with others who speak their language.


Neighborhood Groups

There are six Neighborhood Groups scattered throughout Central Illinois--they are the heart of the American Sewing Guild. ASG sewing buddies meet on a regular basis to share ideas, to problem-solve, and to inspire each other.

Each meeting has an educational program intended to increase your sewing knowledge and skill. Sewing triumphs, as well as sewing challenges, are shared during “Sew and Tell," where expert suggestions will help move your project along.
