Beginning Sewing starts by teaching basic sewing skills, like how to use a sewing machine, how to choose fabric, how to select and use patterns, how to select sutable fabrics, how to install zippers and hems, and taking care of clothing. The highter divisions get gradually more difficult, until the 4-H'er can make such complicated items as suits, coats and formal wear. This project is for boys as well as girls.
There are eight Arts & Crafts categories available to exhibit. Each category has its own set of guidelines that must be met in order to exhibit a complete project.
The communications project will include Interactive Demonstration, Demonstration, Informative 4-H Presentation, Professional Persuasive Presentation, Public Speaking, and Illustrated Talk (for rabbit and poultry only).
The genealogy project will increase the 4-H members' awareness of themselves, their family's history and heritage. Educational materials on "How to" information on documenting one's heritage through ancestral listing. The project can be done as an individual or group with a parent or grandparent. It helps young people know where their ancestors resided, traveled, and developed some family traditions.
