Sewing introduces you to the diverse world of clothing and sewing and includes 3 levels. This project will help you explore the world of sewing and textiles by completing various sewing projects.
Sewing projects will not need the project books unless they want one as a reference tool
*** Please note, if you do not attend at least one workshop in your project area during the 4-H year, you will be required to complete activities in your project book and turn it in with your record book. The number of activities required to complete a 4-H year in each project book can be found here.
