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 Quilterâ€™s World Magazine.
Kim taught the 4-Hâ€™ers a simple technique of stitching and cutting away layers of fabric, creating the Raggedy Reverse Applique for pillows.
From start to finish, 4-Hâ€™ers made a pillow in just three hours. For more information about Kim Deneaultâ€™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.
