NEW!!! 4-H Sewing
Club

Pamlico County 4-H has a NEW Sewing Club. This group under the direction of Carolyn Sinclair will have their first official meeting on September 22, 2014 at the Pamlico County Library from 3pm-5pm. The club began out of interest of the sewing workshop Ms Carolyn presented during Summerfest. There is currently space for 2 more youth. Youth must be 9-18 years old. Youth will focus on basic sewing projects, learning the parts of the sewing machine, and being able to read patterns. At their first meeting the club will establish their club name and begin on a patchwork shoulder bag. You do not need to own a sewing machine or have any previous experience. If you are interested in joining the sewing club, please contact Sarah Delap, 4-H agent, at 252-745-4121.
