ASG (American Sewing Guild) : By the mid 1970s, sewing education had already been dropped from many school curriculums. American women were entering the workforce in large numbers, no longer having the time to sew or to teach their daughters the sewing arts. The American Home Sewing Association (a trade organization of fabric, pattern, notions and sewing machine manufacturers and sewing related retail stores now known as the Home Sewing Association) wanted to come up with a way to keep the interest in and tradition of home sewing alive and well as a valued part of American culture. The idea of the American Sewing Guild was born.
