Each year I get so excited when I see the garments that our 4-H members have made. Some are as young as 8! These are the participants in our county this year. Yesterday we had a regional revue where 66 members from 9 counties competed for spots to attend the state competition. I give our volunteer leaders all the credit for the time and energy they devote to our sewers!
I have the easy job of overseeing their efforts.
The two to the left, along with the gown below, were selected to go on to the state competition.
I was in 4H as a kid and used to go down to the grange for meetings. One year I won a blue ribbon for sewing. I was 8 when I won the ribbon and didnt sew again until I was married and had a machine of my own. It is amazing how most of these young seamstresses can undoubtedly sew far better than I can now. If ya dont use it...ya loose it.
