Welcome to the American Sewing Guild: Alameda County Chapter

The American Sewing Guild is an organization with chapters nationwide. The Alameda County Chapter was founded in October 2012.  

The Alameda County Chapter is happy to advance sewing as an art and life skill. We serve Alameda County and San Francisco county.  Our chapter hosts chapter meetings 8 times per year. We provide programs and projects to assist each other with learning more about sewing and community service projects. We offer hands on lessons, guest speakers and an annual three day retreat.

ASG Fabric Contest

ASG Fabric Design Contest, part 2 Q&A


Wow!  Part 2 of the Fabric Design contest has generated so much excitement and interest that it has exceeded our expectations. We have received multiple questions, and I love the way we as sewers think… out of the box. So this update will serve as a reminder of the contest and address some of those questions again.

To order fabric go to: https://www.myfabricdesigns.com/artist/americansewingguild/main   

Entries have already started coming in. I know that there will be many others as the deadline approaches. To comply with the many requests we have received, the deadline for submissions has been extended to May 31, 2018. Yes, you now have an additional two months to work on your fabulous entries.

  • Can one member submit more than one item?
    Yes, as long as the items are different in terms of patterns. For example: one member can submit a handbag, a dress and a wall hanging. As a result, the chapter will be credited three entries.
  • Do I have to use the gray and white version of the design?
    No, you can use any of the color palettes offered and in any size on any fabric.
  • I can’t seem to find a place to enter the discount code, ASG20.
    To find the space to enter ASG20, first pick the fabric and put it in your cart. Scroll down, just below the listing of fabrics look on the left to enter the discount code
  • Can I use more of the coordinating fabric design than the winning design?
    Yes. The rule is that the winning design made with the dress form and the ASG logo (in any color palette and size) must be featured in the project.
  • Can I use the winning design solely as a lining in a project?
    No, using it this way does not feature the design. It must be visible from the exterior of the item.
  • How will you know how to credit my chapter for my entry?
    After your creation is completed, you will need to submit your name, your chapter name, and a photo of your creation making sure that the winning design is clearly displayed and sends it to the asgfabricdesigncontest@gmail. com no later than May 31, 2018.  (this is an e-mail address, not a link)
