Just as a reminder, if you were unable to make last week’s meeting, you need to let me know if you cannot find a pattern, but you will need to make sure that you bring material and thread. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! If you would like to bring your machine next week, that is recommended, but not required.

We will meet at Wal-Mart and go to the fabric section. We’re going to be looking at our fabric options, talking about budget, how fabric is chosen, and what they need to have for sewing projects. We are SEW EXCITED! Also, don’t forget the assignment to write down what you want to make, the material you want to make it with, and the colors you want to use. Then draw a picture of your design, what you think it should look like, with details. Do you want pockets, zippers, buttons, sleeves, or something you make up yourself? The options are endless!

Join us for our 4-H SEWING CLUB! We will be meeting Tuesday Afternoons from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. beginning January 23, 2018 Ages 8 and up Please call 252-633-1477 for more information or email albrook4@ncsu.eduJoin us as we begin a series of classes in sewing with an amazing new science-based curriculum thanks to our sponsor, Marie Mynster! We are so excited to be offering these classes. We are going to be meeting every Tuesday beginning January 23, 2018 until our project is complete. Most days, the location will be at the Craven County Extension Office, but we will be taking a couple of trips to look at purchasing fabric and types of fabric.
The classes will begin with a look at different types of fabrics, fibers and colors and will end with students having a portfolio of reference materials and their work. There is no cost for the class, but you will have to provide your own materials for it. (I will be sending out a materials list after week two is complete.)
The class will last approximately 8 weeks (we want to make sure youth get to finish their project) and they will have an opportunity to continue to sew if they would like after this is concluded.
The age minimum is 8 years old and youth are expected to follow all safety precautions, along with the 4-H Code of Conduct. If you have not filled out a 4-H Enrollment form for 2018, you will need to do that as well. Here is the link to our
