The Edinburg Seambusters 4-H sewing club met recently at the Edinburg Town Hall to begin its 70th year as a club.
The program began with a discussion on how to decide on a project, choose a pattern and the correct fabric for it. Members divided up into pairs and worked on the proper way to take measurements.
Members shared experiences from their field trip to see fashion designer Suede (Stephen Baum) at Jo-Ann Fabrics in Hudson and Suede's fashion show at Kent State University Fashion School.
In addition, members also explored the Kent State Fashion Museum.
Ohio 4-H Week, March 33 through 9, will be celebrated by participating in the county window decorating contest. The club has a display at the Tractor Supply Company in Ravenna.
Other activities planned by the club will be attending the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Cleveland on March 23 and competing in the Sewing's Next Generation Fashion competition. Other members are looking forward to attending the 4-H State Teen Conference on Saturday in Columbus.
The club's next meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. March 24 at the Edinburg United Church where they will be sewing a community service project.
The club is open to boys and girls who want to learn to sew.
