Oswego County 4-H’s Learn to Sew Program a Success!


The offices of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County was hopping during spring break week as many youth and volunteers filled the building for the encore presentation of its annual Learn to Sew program, led by 4-H Educator, Mary Matteson.

Oswego County youth proudly display the fruits of their newly developed sewing skills.

Oswego County youth proudly display the fruits of their newly developed sewing skills.

Youth, ages eight to 19, visited for three days, and through games and practice learned the basics of sewing, by both hand and machine.

Many experienced sewing volunteers were on hand to support the youth as they worked on developing the life-long skill of sewing.

Participants went home with three completed projects demonstrating their newly acquired skills: a potholder, a table runner, and a pillow case.
