4-H Campers sewing inaugural was 'fun-tastic'

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

It was a celebration of firsts for the 4-H at the Levy County Extension Service office in Bronson.

Everyone had made his or her first outfit - a top and a bottom.

The quilting on the pillows was a first experience.

Baking cookies was not a "first time" experience, but making them in the shape of clothing certainly was.

There was the first boy in a class dominated by girls.

It was the first time sore fingertips united them in a universal dislike of sewing needle pricks.

The first 4-H summer sewing camp of 2008 had a lot of firsts, not including the fashion show for parents, grandparents and admirers of needle arts.

The 10 campers sat on the last row of chairs, eager to show off their new outfits and occasionally taking guests on a tour of the works on display on tables around three sides of the room. There were pillows, pincushions, paintings, sewing chests, paper butterflies, photo frames and other items.

For Chaz Weatherly, 11, it was a whole new experience. He and sister Theresa, 9, took the class together. Both Williston residents are home-school students.
