Sew What? 4-H Sewing Day Camp

— Written By

The whir of sewing machines filled the air last week as Washington County 4-H’ers participated in the Sew-What? 4-H Sewing Day Camp. Volunteers from the American Sewing Guild, Raleigh Chapter, Down East Neighborhood Group worked with youth one on one as they learned to measure, read patterns, pin, hand sew, use interfacing, use a sewing machine, and perfect their projects. This year’s project was a tote bag suitable for a beach bag or overnight bag. This very traditional 4-H program has regained popularity in recent years and has been a fun addition to the 4-H summer schedule! 4-H is a part of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service.

If you are interested in this or any other 4-H program, contact Laura Oliver, Washington County 4-H Agent, 793-2163.
