Have you ever wanted to be president?
Now's Your Time!
A note from our President, Lori Clark:
2018 marks my fourth and last year as ASG Chapter president. As mentioned in my last Seamlines, ASG policy states that one may only serve four consecutive years in an elected position. This means that someone else must step up to run for president. It is important that members understand that all CAB members, both elected and appointed, are volunteers. We receive no compensation for the time and energy we put into ASG; just the satisfaction of contributing to an organization we believe in and want to support. A number of our CAB members have been volunteering for many years, serving in a number of positions. I am gathering that information for my next Seamlines. Be on the lookout for it. If you have ever thought about stepping up to guide your ASG chapter, now is a great time. Join us at a CAB meeting and learn more.
COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT
The Las Vegas ASG "Charity Sew" is to make stockings for our deployed military troops who will not be home to share the holidays with family and friends. We work in conjunction with the Henderson and Boulder City, Nevada Blue Star Mothers who arrange the donations to fill the stockings. The Blue Star Mothers was founded in 1942 as part of a movement to provide packages to our military serving overseas. They also provide assistance to family members who encounter hardships as a result of their son, daughter or spouse serving in the war.
If you would like to contribute your time and talents to this worthy cause, please click below for the instructions to complete the stockings. You can send the completed stockings with our members attending the ASG National Conference in Las Vegas. Please contact Lori Clark by July 6, 2018 if you have completed stockings to send. We can also mail completed stockings to Las Vegas.
The American Sewing Guild (ASG) is a national membership organization that welcomes sewing enthusiasts of all skill levels and from many different walks of life. Chapters are located in cities all across the country and members of all ages meet monthly to learn new sewing skills, network with others who share an interest in sewing and participate in community service sewing projects. Membership in the Guild gives you an opportunity to experience your love of any type of home sewing with others who share your interest.
