Anyone Can Win is open to ASG “over 18” members and anyone age 18 and under. (Open to U.S. residents only.) If the entrant is not a Junior Member, the “18 and under” category needs an ASG sponsor. But it isn’t necessary for the sponsor to have been involved in sewing the entry. We just want you to encourage young people to enter. Note, however, that the sponsor’s name and ASG membership number must be included on the entry form. To enter, make all or part of any of the 14 ASG patterns listed on this page. Take a digital photo of your creation and then go to the Members Only section of www.asg.org. Click on the Contest 2016 banner, fill out the entry form, and follow the easy instructions to upload and label your photo (only one photo per garment, please). That’s it! The deadline for entries is midnight EDT, July 1, 2016. Making more than one garment? Enter them all. The more garments you enter, the greater your chances of winning!Four winners will be chosen electronically at random—two “over 18” ASG members and two “18 and under” entrants. The first “over 18” member selected will receive a Janome Skyline 57, with 240 built-in stitches and LCD color touchscreen. (To learn more about this machine, visit www.janome.com.) The second name selected will receive a gift pack of A&E Intressa Premium Polyester Core Spun Sewing Thread with 600-yd. spools in 24 colors. That’s 14,400 yards of thread! The first “18 and under” winner will receive a $100 shopping spree from Nancy’s Notions; the second will receive a $50 Nancy’s shopping spree. Both young winners will also receive a one-year Junior Membership in ASG.
