There is a lot going on in 4-H Clubs across the county.  If you are looking for something new to try I would like to encourage you to check out the clubs listed below and see if there is something that piques your interest.  4-H is learning at its best, you come because you’re interested and learn skills you can use throughout your life.  Don’t miss out.  Call us at 845-2811 or visit us on the web for more details www.henrycounty4h.com
The 4-H Sewing Club is now meeting on Monday’s and Thursday’s at the extension office from 3:30 till 5 p.m.  The first project is a pillow case.  If you enjoy making the pillow case and would like to continue then you can make a pair of pants, pajama bottoms, shorts or skirt with an elastic or drawstring waist.  There is fabric available but if you would like to select your own fabric you would need to bring one yard and thread to match.
The 4-H Crocheting Club has been meeting on Tuesday’s at the extension office from 3:30 till 5 p.m.  They are learning how to make stitches by making a dish washcloth.  Once they have that mastered they will be making scarves.  If you want to join the group get on board now.  The yarn and crochet hook is provided.
