TAYLOR COUNTY—Taylor County 4-H prides itself on teaching its members important skills that have been too soon forgotten by many, including the fine art of quilt making and sewing.
Over the summer, Ashley Kooken and Jennifer Murray will be teaching a “You Can Quilt” project, during their Alpha camps.
As part of the curriculum, youth in the program are expected to make two lap-sized quilts, one that will be kept and the other to be donated.
Taylor County 4-H is reaching out with a found item request to help gather much needed supplies for the project.
The items needed include fabric, batting, thread, embroidery thread, pins, pin cushions, needles, marking tools, seam rippers, scissors, quit basting spray, rotary cutters, rotary mats, rotary rulers, irons and table top ironing boards.
The organization will be accepting gently used items in good condition, as well as brand new supplies.
The items may be dropped off at the Taylor County Extension Office, located at 7 Hospital Plaza, Grafton, by Friday June 21.
“Please know that whatever items are left over will be added to the 4-H sewing supplies cupboard for future county and statewide sewing programs,” shared Murray.
