Eleven Smith County 4-H members met on Thursday, July 8th, for our first ever Maker for a Day Camp. Throughout the day, campers learned how to sew their own doll, sew a pillowcase, and make embroidery hoop button flowers. Campers also made homemade dog toys out of recycled t-shirts for the Dekalb County Animal Shelter, and they worked together to make children’s sized tie blankets for the Emmanuel House.
Maker for a Day Camp was a great success thanks in part to our FCE Volunteers, Anne Waggoner, Terri Dillehay, Peggy Kemp, Janice Lynch, Faye Knochenmus, and Maggie Klenke, who helped make it possible. Thanks also to our teen leader Abby Malone for her assistance.
