Project     Crittenton Bibs and Sheets

​Bring        Sewing machine or serger
                   (optional)
​                   Basic sewing supplies,
                   especially scissors
​                   Sack lunch
                   (or order carry out)

There are several non-sewing steps such as cutting or pressing if you prefer not to bring a machine.                

Community service projects allow our chapter to reach out to serve other organizations each year.  We support local groups by making custom sewn items that are created and donated by members of our chapter.

As members do community service sewing throughout the year, they can take finished items to a neighborhood group leader or bring them to any neighborhood group meeting or chapter event.

​Members are asked to keep track of the hours and  the cost of supplies so the information can be reported to the National organization.

Giving Back Nationally...

 Across the country, members support community service work by participating in a national project adopted annually as well as many other worthwhile endeavors.  Find out more and support the projects of your choice:

Make 18 in '18

The need in our area for Anti-Ouch Pouch mastectomy pillows is increasing. Currently, the Central Illinois Chapter donates about 1,000 pillows to local hospitals and individuals each year. Help eplenish our stock by participating in the Make 18 in ’18!

We have assembled bundles of eighteen pre-cut Anti-Ouch pillows, along with coordinating hook and loop tape. These will be available at sewing guild events. Sew them at any point during the year and bring them back, unstuffed, to a guild function. This means sewing only one or two pillows a month. How easy is that?


There is no expense to you and the cutting is done for you!

Have your own fabric, but don’t have any hook and loop tape? Make up eighteen pillows, bring them to a guild event, unstuffed, and we will add the hook and loop tape.


Prefer sewing with other guild members? Come to one of our sewing days, enjoy the camaraderie, and make a few out of our fabric. 


Instructions and an instructional video are available at: https://www.asg.org/resources/giving-back/ on the ASG website. Our
goal is for 20 members to participate. This will be 360 pillows toward the needed 1000.
