STEAM Sewing SPIN Club Fall Informational Meeting

October 10, 2017 (4:30 PM - 6:00 PM )

McLean County Extension Office
1615 Commerce Parkway
Bloomington, IL 61704 (McLean County)

Do you want to learn the basics of sewing?  Are you between the ages of 8 and 11?  Then we have an exciting opportunity for you! The McLean County Super Sewers SPIN Club is coming back for a second year!

What's a SPIN Club?  A SPIN Club is a Special-Interest Club, this special interest club will focus on building STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) while helping youth gain basic sewing skills. Over the course of the spring and summer, we will have 6 meetings, all exploring the new 4-H project STEAM Clothing 1. 

This is a 4-H Club that you can join in addition to your primary 4-H club; BUT you do not have to be in a 4-H club to join us.  This club is also open to youth who are new to 4-H.  Youth who were in the Super Sewers SPIN Club last year are also highly encouraged to join again! We just ask that everyone pre-register online and let us know that they are interested in attending the informational meeting.  

The first meeting will be held at the McLean County Extension Office (1615 Commerce Parkway in Bloomington), at 4:30 on Tuesday, October 10.  At this meeting, you will learn about the activities that the SPIN Club will complete and a calendar will be distributed.  Regular meetings will begin in the spring. 

If you have any questions please contact Leah Street at 309-663-8306 or lpstreet@illinois.edu
