Macoupin County 4-H Offers Recycled Tees Workshop
June 20, 2016
Recycled Tees Workshop
Several youth from Macoupin County filled the back room of the U of I Extension office for a fun filled morning of making handmade projects. Participants enhanced their creative side by completing two t-shirt projects to take home that day. The youth worked hard, were focused, and were a joy to have at this event.
Home and Community Education (HCE) member Terry Jameson taught the group how to make t-shirt scarves. Participants followed step-by-step instructions to complete a t-shirt scarf to take home. Youth also learned how to make t-shirt tote bags.
For more information on 4-H please call the University of Illinois Extension, Macoupin County at 217-854-9604 or online at web.extension.illinois.edu/cjmm/macoupin4h/
