The Original Sewing & Quilt Expo is coming to the Chicago-area on March 31 through April 2 at the Schaumburg Convention Center and the ASG needs your help. There are two types of volunteer opportunities at the Expo:

    ASG Chicago Chapter Booth Volunteer — Member volunteers will help promote the ASG and encourage membership or renewals for half-day or whole day shifts.
    Expo Ambassador Program Volunteer — Volunteer for classroom assistant, ticket taker, information desk assistant, set-up/tear-down assistant, sewing studio organizer, white glove gallery monitor, and general booth help for half-day or whole day shifts.

Free Tickets Available!

The ASG Chicago Chapter will have a booth at the Expo and we need volunteers for the following times. The first two (2) volunteers to register for each section will receive a free general admission pass to the Exhibit Hall.  The pass will be good for just the day volunteered.

  • Section A:  Thursday, March 31 – 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
