Members of 4-H in the parish are learning to sew this summer, just one of the summer activities planned for 4-H students.
After the first day of their 4-H sewing workshop they posted, “We went to visit the ladies at the Sewing house to see what projects they are working on and to learn to crochet. They make blankets and caps for people with medical needs and special patriotic blankets for our veterans. Our 4-Hers learned very quickly and had lots of fun visiting with the ladies. Thank you to the ladies for welcoming 4-H and making our morning so enjoyable!”
Students participating included Abby Jowers, Addison Bounds, Julia Grace Riggs, and Raegan Cannon. Assisting the students were Lawanna Fowler, Pat Almond, Mary Ann Smith, and Susan Taylor.
The sewing program is called “Sewing God’s Love” and was organized by Taylor several years ago. Ladies from First Methodist, First Baptist and Wesley Chapel churches meet each Monday to sew and have fellowship. Their creations benefit many people in the parish each year. Anyone wishing to join the group can come to their weekly gathering at 9:30 on Monday mornings. The Sew House is located on Fair Street.
