Arts & Crafts

     Leathercraft - The Friends Forever 4-H Club will host leather craft workshops on Saturday Jan 12 (Hall A) & March 23 (Winks) from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Come and go as you please. Bring lunch and snacks, if desired.

The Indianapolis Leather Guild will be available for guidance and coaching to all who wish to make a project. They will bring all the tools necessary for projects. This is the perfect opportunity to complete a basic craft project, and the workshops are open to future 4-H’ers and free of charge.

Go to www.tandyleather.com to preview project kits and cost. The Leather Guild will have some kits available for purchase, from coasters to whole kits, but they won’t have every kit available on the Tandy Leather website with them. If you have a specific project kit picked out from Tandy Leather, we will need your kit name before Jan 5th to make sure the Leather Guild will have your kit picked up from the Tandy Leather store and available for you at the workshop. Please bring a check or exact cash. You may also purchase kits online at Tandy, or visit their store on the west side of Indianapolis. Be sure to mention your project is for 4-H.

RSVP to Rosalie Alvey at brianandrosalie@yahoo.com to reserve your spot. She can also put in project kit requests to the Leather Guild and they will be able to bring the kit with them, for your convenience. Please direct further questions to Rosalie Alvey at the email address listed above.
