ASG at the Minnesota State Fair
The tradition continues. Join your fellow American Sewing Guild members at the Minnesota State Fair on Monday, August 26, and Tuesday, August 27, in the Creative Activities Building to extoll the virtues of ASG membership and to work on community service sewing. This year we will be sewing pillowcases. Recipients will include Rein in Sarcoma, Children’s Hospitals and local veterans.
If you are willing to work a three-hour shift on Monday and/or Tuesday you can sign up on SignUp Genius or by calling Lori Clark, Special Events Coordinator, at 651-983-4718. Volunteers will receive a ticket to the State Fair and thanks for helping your local ASG Chapter. The Creative Activities Building is located at 1342 Cosgrove Street, near the Snelling Avenue entrance to the State Fair Grounds.
See you at the fair!
Anyone up for a Road Trip?
Linda McGehee is going to be teaching at the Quilt Expo in Madison, Wisconsin September 5-7. It is definitely more quilt oriented than garment, but they have a large vendor floor, a large quilt exhibit, and lecture and hands on classes. Since Original Sewing and Quilt Expo doesn’t show signs of returning any time soon and Nancy’s Sewing Weekend won’t happen since there is no longer a store, wondering if some of our members may be interested in attending. If you are interested in planning a road trip, visit our FB page or Groupworks site and maybe we can get a group from here to go to Madison. The website is wiquiltexpo.com
