Learn hand embroidery and much more

A new 4-H Club opens up a world of potential for participants.

If you are aged 9 to 19 and interested in learning hand embroidery this new 4-H club could be for you.

Members learn hand embroidery stitches, which can be used to

create beautiful (one of a kind) gifts, embellish your own clothing and accessories, create works of art and let your creativity and imagination soar.

4-H is an educational program which offers members opportunities to enhance their knowledge, leadership skills, citizenship training and personal development.

Members elect an executive, run meetings and learn speaking, demonstration, judging and presentation skills. You can also qualify for exciting 4-H travel opportunities and even earn high school credits.

Meetings will be held once a month January through June and September to November. It’s not too late to register for this new 4-H Needle Craft Club.
