Sewing class planned for children and parents

The art of sewing is not lost with 4-H. Recently, the 4-H Sew N Sews Club learned how easy it can be to stitch up a pillow with special guest instructor Kim Deneault.
Kim, designer of the Raggedy Reverse Applique, has been featured on PBS Creative Living, Fiskars TV, www.QNNtv.com and in Quilter’s World Magazine.
Kim taught the 4-H’ers a simple technique of stitching and cutting away layers of fabric, creating the Raggedy Reverse Applique for pillows.
From start to finish, 4-H’ers made a pillow in just three hours. For more information about Kim Deneault’s Raggedy Reverse Applique visit www.kidzsew.com or www.raggedyreverseapplique.com.
Sewing is a marketable skill that also teaches youth critical thinking, problem solving and decision-making skills.
4-H will offer Mom and Me Spring Fling Sewing Classes for youth who would like to be a part of the Lincoln County 4-H Fashion Show.
The 4-H Fashion Show will be held on Friday, April 20 for youth that have sewn a garment.
Youth who would like to learn how to sew and participate in the 4-H Fashion Show may register for one of three classes.
A Beginner’s Apron Class will be held on Monday, April 9 from 9 a.m. until noon.
An Intermediate Pajama Class will be held on Wednesday, April 11 from 9 a.m. until noon.
A Beginner’s Short or Skirt Class will be held on Thursday, April 12 from 9 a.m. until noon.
A parent or other adult is requested to stay and learn along with the child and youth are required to participate in the 4-H Fashion Show.
The registration fee for each class is $8 and some materials are required. Registration is required by March 26. For more information about the classes, please contact the 4-H office, North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Lincoln County at (704) 736-8458.
