Sister in law imposes guilt trips to get me to do things, what would you say or do?

Sounds like you have a bossy sister-in-law who feels she's superior to you. Defy her and she'll cower into a corner.

Guilt trips are like playing ball. If you catch the ball, then you end up with the guilt. You believe whatever they tell you and you act on it.
Stop catching the ball. Stop believing what they say and taking it for true.
You don't have to do anything you don't want to. "no" is a whole sentence.

I don’t understand why in-laws try to pull everyone else into their drama. Just don’t pay attention to her. It’s hard I know bc i have to deal with my husbands controlling sister. Ignoring her seems to be the best thing. Just don’t engage when she try’s to guilt trip you.

Tell her she married him, that's her job now. Then tell her to bugger off.

If you don't want to do something just say no and be firm about it. I sense you haven't always been and she knows she can take advantage of you. If you set boundaries with her she will eventually back off.

Stop allowing her to, you allow her to guilt you, just STOP. Easier said than done though.

It all depends on what she guilt trips you with
I wouldnt put up with it and explain that it was solely because of the attempt at guilt tripping
