On Nov. 5, 4-H’ers and other sewers met for the first statewide 4-H Sewing Clinic. People of all skills and ages met from 9am to 4pm to discuss individual projects and learn new skills to sew. We made bags, scarfs, and hats through the day. A guest speaker named Carl Hammond came in to talk to us about techniques, needles, and how sewing machines work. The clinic was a complete success and was full of rich information. Thank you to our knowledgeable leaders and volunteers for spending their Saturday with us.
