Default 4-H and Quilters!!

Many of us give credit to 4-H for developing our early sewing abilities, and leading us towards our quilting passions.

Did you know ... that today is the birthday of 4-H?

On this day in 1901, 4-H Clubs were begun by an Iowa school teacher, Jessie Field Shaqmbaugh at the Goldenrod School.

The four H's are head. heart, hands and health.
The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills of qyout through exp0eriential learning programs and a positive youth development approach.

The motto of 4-H is "Learn to Do by Doing".

Many of us live the 4-H motto, as we continually develop our quilting skills.

Have you honoured 4-H in any way in your quilting projects?
Please show us what you have done ....

Thank you Jessie!
Happy 111th Birthday, 4-H!!
