2021 Sewing Camp

   This year, we had two youth who signed up to learn the art of sewing. Patrick Sherrill and Emma Green joined us at the office for three days to learn how to operate the machine, create projects, and hand stitch. Our fantastic volunteer leader, Rubye Parham, helped instruct the class and showed the 4-H members different sewing techniques on the machines. They each created multiple items, such as travel tissue holders, ear warmers, hoot-owl magnets, and more! It was great to be able to host a 4-H Sewing Camp after not being able to for the past year due to Covid-19.
