Due to the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus, all Fort Wayne Chapter of the American Sewing Guild meetings and events are cancelled through June 1, 2020. Stay well, stay in and stay creative!
We're in this together!
Our members have made hundreds of face masks for donation to first responders, hospitals, nursing homes, health care workers, neighbors, family and friends and we are continuing to do more. Pictured at left are just a few samples made from JoAnn Fabric's pattern, but there are many other patterns being used. Check online to find the one or ones that suit your fancy and sew up a few or many. It is our way of saying thank you to those who are putting themselves in harms way to keep us safe. We will get through this difficult time together by helping one another.
We may not be able to meet in person, but we’ve come up with a way to hold a virtual sewing event that’s sure to keep our sewing mojo energized! All Fort Wayne Chapter members are 'challenged' to create something new that is made ENTIRELY from things in their stash. Yes, it's a stash-buster event! Anything goes - from mug rugs to wall hangings, quilts, clothing, home dec and more! If you can sew it up from supplies in your stash, it can be part of a big show & tell we'll have when we can get back together again. In the meantime, make something awesome and send us a picture for our Chapter Facebook and website with details about how this became your stash-buster project. Everyone who makes a project from April 23-May 31 and sends a picture by May 31 will be entered in a drawing for a Cabin Fever Challenge prize at our Annual Meeting this fall.
Here are some entries we have received so far! Do we have fabulous stashes or what?!
The mystery is over! We took 90 charm squares and cut, rearranged and pieced them together to create this pretty quilt top. Click here to see the fun!
Our chapter members have big hearts! Check out the charity sewing we have been doing. Click here to go to our new Community Service page. And be sure to scroll down on that page to see some of the more than 200 Angel Gowns a group of our members made and donated to area hospitals last fall. One of the Angel Gowns is pictured at left. Find out how you can help.
Join us as we explore all things sewing - garment making, home dec, quilting, serger, felting, sewing tips and tricks, community service projects and more. You will find fellowship, inspiration, discounts, free online videos and just plan fun with others who share the same passion for sewing.
The American Sewing Guild welcomes sewers of all skill levels, ages, and interests. We offer a place for sewers to learn new skills, share interests, and contribute through community service. Membership offers the opportunity to nurture your love of sewing in a supportive and caring community of others who share your love of all things sewing.
