Upcoming 4-H Workshops

Two-part series, Saturdays May 22nd and June 5th, 1:00-3:00 pm
Sew a Travel Pocket Pillow

This project is a cross between quilting and dimensional sewing. You will be making a handy pocket travel pillow. This is a step up from the table runner. If you are comfortable with your sewing machine and can sew a straight seam please join us.
This is a two session activity. 22 May and 5 June 1:00 PM – 3:00PM. The first meeting will cover the 9-patch front of the pillow; the second meeting, the pillow pocket back and finishing of the pillow.
To make this easier on participants, the zoom is set up so everyone only needs to register once. On May 24th, participants will receive an email with the code to enter the meeting room on 5 June.
Hosted by the WSU 4-H Sewing and Textile Advisors of Cowlitz County
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting and a follow up email with material requirements.

Wednesday, May 26th, 6:30-7:30 pm
