Image ButtonSewing provides the opportunity for young people to experience a sense of accomplishment associated with completing a project. It also provides an opportunity for youth to understand textiles, construction techniques, design principles as well as develop eye/hand coordination. Research has found that youth who sew develop skills needed to become more creative thinkers.

Image ButtonThe experiential learning activities in the Sewing curriculum are designed to provide a positive learning experience for youth. Sewing helpers are encouraged to focus on the fun, experience, and accomplishments attained in the project rather than on attaining "perfection."

The 4-H Sewing Essentials program is available nationally through the 4-H Cooperative Curriculum System as a three level, one helper guide set of curriculum emphasizing experiential learning and exploration. For more information go to the 4-H Cooperative Curriculum Web Site at
