Central Illinois Chapter of the
American Sewing Guild
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.
Sew Special 2023 - September 29-30
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.
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.
Sew Special 2023 Details
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.

September is National Sewing Month
Sewing enthusiasts across the country are celebrating a special month dedicated to the art,
utility, and passion for sewing.
The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”
This display at the Peoria Public Library North Branch features members' creations to celebrate this special occasion.
