If you are enrolled in 4-H Decorate Your Duds and/or a clothing project, have sewed at least one item, and are ready for a new sewing design challenge, this is the 4-H Camp for you! Bring a sewing machine and your creativity and join UNL Extension Educators, Megan Burda, Jessye Goertz and Sue Pearman on May 30 and 31 at the State 4-H Camp at Halsey for 4-H Project Designer Camp.
Megan, Jessye, and Sue, will instruct campers on how to use dyes and products from nature to create their own border print on fabric. They will assist with pattern alterations, pattern layout, and garment construction to make a skirt, sundress or simple top from the original designed fabric.
The Go Georgeous! Session will include skin care, make-up tips and lots of modeling. Breaks in sewing include a trip down the zipline and creating a recycled accessory from plastic bags.
By the completion of the two day camp, you will have designed and made a garment to enter as Decorate Your Duds exhibit and a bag to enter as a Recycled Accessory. Cost is $60 which includes cabin, meals, and all the supplies for both projects. Registration is due by May 10th and there is a 20 person limit.
