Holiday Sewing Workshop

Youth gathered at the Extension office in Carlinville for a 4-H holiday sewing workshop. Volunteer Arrettea Rumple of Waverly along with some very helpful parents were on hand to help guide youth in sewing holiday stockings. During this workshop, participants constructed their very own stocking to take home and then made another one for Carlinville Area Hospital patients who are hospitalized during the holidays.  Participants used hands-on learning to practice basic sewing techniques. Youth learned how to measure, cut out fabric, and sew a seam on the sewing machine.

 

For more information about 4-H youth programs, please contact the U of I Extension office at 217-854-9604.
