June 11, 2019 – The Sequatchie County UT Extension Service is hosting three summer courses for children, through the local 4-H program: 4-H Quilt Workshop, 4-H Needle Craft Days, and Jewelry-Making Class for Kids.


Scheduled for July 15-18, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., the annual Quilt Workshop will teach students in grades 4-12 basic quilting skills. Participants will make a 9-patch quilt block. Cost is $5, and the deadline to register is June 28.


Needle Craft Days is set for July 22-24, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and is open to students in grades 4-12. Needlecraft techniques that will be taught include embroidery, crochet, and huck weaving. Cost is $5, and the deadline to register is July 5.


The last summer course will teach how to make jewelry, so students can make their own earrings, bracelets, and matching necklaces for back-to-school.

Learn how to make your own designer jewelry and be one of a kind,” organizers said.

Planned for Aug. 1, the time will be 9 a.m.-noon, with snacks provided. Cost is $10.

All courses will be held in the Exhibition Hall at the Sequatchie County Fairgrounds, on Heard Street in Dunlap.
