Alaska State Fair

Thank you for joining us August 19-September 5

Alaska Sewlutions looks forward to the sewing exhibits and much more in 2023. We hope you'll keep sewing!

If you haven’t participated before, make a plan to help next year: as a part of Alaska Sewlutions mission to share sewing as an art and life skill, members participate in and organize the Alaska State Fair Sewing Department, an exhibition of garments, sewn crafts, costumes and more from across the state. It is a lot of fun! Show off your sewing skills and receive constructive feedback when you enter: all entrants receive detailed notes on their submission, whether or not they earn a ribbon. Special prizes, including the Superintendent's Award, go to extraordinary works of sewing.

Professional, adult, and junior subcategories (ages 12-under and 13-17) ensure fair competition.

The 2022 Sewing Department exhibit was a mega success thanks to the terrific leadership of superintendent Alice Stevens and all of you who helped in varying capacities from August 5 through Labor Day! It is truly a labor of love. The added lighting really made our section shine. There were 157 entries of which a huge percentage were from ASG members! Many, many visitors commented on the quality of the entries. A giant thank you to all who participated and inspired others!
