June is almost here, and 4-H is offering two low-cost workshops to help build new skills, meet new people and have fun.

Sewing 101 starts June 5

This four-session workshop runs 1 to 3 p.m. on June 5, 8, 12 and 13 at the Kendall County Extension Office, 7775B Route 47, Yorkville. Youth and teens will learn the parts of a sewing machine, practice sewing and turning corners and make a square pillow cover and a pillowcase. Participants will need to bring their own sewing machine and some supplies; 4-H will provide the facility and adult guidance.

This series is great to build new skills and complete a sewing project for fair or just for fun. Learn more and sign up at go.illinois.edu/DKK4Hsewing2023. Cost per person is $20. Space may be limited.
