Youth invited to join in 4-H food preparation, sewing projects

-A A +A

We are offering two new 4-H projects for youth.

4-H sewing

I will be teaching 4-H sewing for youth later in April and May. This will be a beginning sewing project club. Youth wanting to learn to sew or those with some basic sewing skills who have taken a 4-H beginning sewing project before and who want to increase their sewing skills are invited. Sessions will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Extension office on Thursdays, April 19 and 26 and May 3, 10, 17 and 24. 

There is no cost to join but youth will need to sign up as a 4-H member, purchase their own fabric, sewing notions and some other supplies.

Sewing machines are available at the Extension office for youth who do not have a sewing machine. Sign up by Monday, April 16.

4-H food preparation

I will soon be starting a 4-H Food Preparation project club.

Both boys and girls are invited who wish to learn food preparation skills. We will meet on Wednesdays, April 25 and May 9, 16, 23 and 30 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Information is going home with our public and private school youth this next week.

There is no cost for youth to join but youth will be expected to attend all sessions. Sign up by Friday, April 20.

4-H sewing and food
preparation leaders

• I still need some volunteers for 4-H leaders to help me teach these two projects. If you would like to help, please call the Extension office.

• All adult 4-H volunteers assisting must have a valid 4-H volunteer application form and background check on file in the county Extension office. Application materials are available at the Extension office and must be completed prior to working with youth.

We will process the applications through our office.

Summer 4-H Projects

I am hoping to offer 4-H projects for youth this summer in sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidering, quilting, baking, breadmaking.

I am also planning some joint parent/youth cooking classes. Call the Extension office to indicate classes you are interested in joining.
