Sewing & Quilting Programs Offered for Youth

The OSU Extension Service in Tillamook will be offering two programs for youth interested in learning to sew or quilt this summer. Participants will complete a project that can be entered in the Tillamook County Fair.

The Quilting Workshop will be held Thursday afternoons, 3:30-5:30 pm from June 29 to July 27 (five days) at the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center. This program is for youth who have completed 4th grade or higher.  The instructor will be Pam Abrams, 4-H sewing leader and quilter.

Sew Much Fun day camp will be held July 3rd & July 5th through 7th, 9 am-noon at the OSU Extension Office in Tillamook.  Beginning sewers who have completed 4th grade or higher will learn to use a sewing machine and make several simple sewing projects, including fleece pants and a pillow.  Instructors are Nancy Kershaw and Phyllis Holmes, assisted by 4-H teens.

All supplies and sewing machines will be provided for participants in both programs.  The cost for each program is $45 which includes instruction, supplies, and accident insurance. Youth not currently enrolled in 4-H will need to complete the 4-H enrollment and pay the 4-H enrollment fee to participate.
