Crochet...embroidery...knitting...lacework (tatting)...quilting...in 4-H, youth have the opportunity to use needles/hook and thread/yarn/floss to create a wide variety of creative and functional items.  Throughout history, needlework has served as a means of relaxation, stress reduction, creative expression and increased manual dexterity. 

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts:  mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity.  This project fosters mastery by learning needlework skills, belonging by developing relationships with mentors and youth with similar interests, independence by making decisions and developing personal talents, and generosity by displaying created items with others.  Contact your county extension office for more information.
