Join us at ‘Rethreaded: 4-H Upcycling Sewing Adventures’, where creativity meets sustainability! This unique sewing camp for intermediate sewists empowers youth to reimagine and repurpose textiles, turning old garments and fabrics into stylish new creations. Through hands-on workshops and guided projects, campers will learn valuable sewing skills while embracing the spirit of upcycling. From transforming old jeans into baskets and bags to giving new life to worn-out button-down shirts, participants will embark on an eco-friendly journey of creativity and innovation. Get ready to thread the needle and make a positive impact on the planet, one stitch at a time!

Every day, we’ll explore a fresh upcycling medium, learning versatile sewing techniques applicable to future projects. We’ll craft three unique projects from a single man’s button-down shirt, transform a pair of jeans into three to four innovative creations, and breathe new life into ordinary items like candy bags and feed bags, fashioning them into a couple of delightful surprises. Alongside mastering diverse sewing skills, participants will grasp the significance of environmental stewardship, discovering the profound impact even small actions can have on preserving our planet.
