4-H clubs involve young people in organized groups, solving issues critical to their lives, their families, and society with an adult leader and a planned program of 4-H projects.

School Enrichment resource materials for teachers and optional classroom instruction on special topics.

Workshops and Special Interest Programs  available to any youth group on 4-H project areas or special topics such as career awareness and exploration, or leadership development.

(FULL) Fall Felted Mitten Class Returns

Saturday, November 8 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m.

This class is full.  Subscribe to our email list for information on future classes.

Breathe new life into old wool sweaters by turning them into cozy winter mittens. These fleece-lined hand warmers can be customized with contrasting fabric and colorful designs: bring 1/4 yard scraps to mix and match with others! Sessions are FREE but you must pre-register! Bring your own tools, machine and supplies. Email Marianne Kerr to register mlkerr@alaska.edu .  Supply lists will be provided upon registration. We have a few loaner sewing machines. For more information call Marianne at 786-6305.

If you're a young, novice sewer, please bring an adult along. The room will stay open for Open Sew until 2:30 so people can stay or drop in to finish up the mittens or work on another project.

The 4-H office is planning these events for the next year; you can be a part of something great:

  • Science Saturday
  • Youth in Government
  • Sewing and Craft classes
