The CTA beginning sewing camps are designed to provide the new sewer to the many exciting adventures to be found with their sewing machine. WSU Clothing Textile Advisor volunteers are excited to share their sewing skills with the youths of Clallam County.

At the camp, youths learn to navigate their sewing machine, use basic sewing tools and be provided with several projects, each designed to improve sewing skills.

All class materials will be provided along with a basic sewing kit that includes the following: tape measure, seam ripper, shears, pincushion and pins, hand sewing needles and seam gauge.

Have your child bring a sewing machine. There are a limited number of machines for use at camp which can be reserved at registration.

Cost is $35 per youth. Scholarships are available and all are encouraged to apply.

Youths do not need to be previously enrolled in 4-H.

Classes will be filled on a first-registered-and paid basis.

Clallam County 4-H programs teach life skills through hands-on project experiences. Community clubs and opportunities are offered throughout the county.
