ASG Spirit Award Sandy Cagle 1942-2013

What is the ASG Spirit Award? 

The Spirit Award Objective is to recognize a member or group for exemplifying ASG spirit. What is ASG spirit? It is creative energy, imagination, enthusiasm, inspiration, commitment, organizational pride and loyalty, embodied in and focused on the ASG mission – “Advancing sewing as an art and life skill.”

What might that member or group look like? They are members who exemplify these attributes and use them to do amazing things that fulfill the ASG mission, such as creating opportunities for others through sewing education and arts and raising awareness of the ASG in the process. These members go above and beyond to further the mission of the American Sewing Guild!

The ASG Spirit Award is not given every year. This is only the third time it has been awarded, and the first time posthumously.

Sew ’til next time, enjoy the journey of sewing…..

I was priviledged to work with Sandy for a number of years both regionally and on the BOD. She was a no-nonsense person and would work you hard — you could tell she had the military in her background! She made me aspire to be a better director and she taught me a lot about governance, working together as women, and how to have fun but still get things done. She loved and worked with deep dedication for ASG in many capacities over the years. It’s too bad she didn’t get to enjoy her award while on this earth but I’m sure she’s smiling in the ‘afterlife’. I personally will miss her and wish her husband my deepest condolences.
