— Learn how to crochet and embark on a community service project in the process.
Long-time at Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County 4-H volunteer, Beverly Hesse, is back with a new project for children and adults- beginners and experienced alike- in a series starting on Friday, Oct. 25.
The workshops will last from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
Participants will learn basic crochet stitches and how to piece blocks together in creating a 12-block lap blanket for hospital and/or nursing home patients.
Once a community service project is completed, Bev will be available to help with the completion of a full-sized afghan for each person.
For those short on time, there will also be an alternate, simple hat project to crochet for community service and an extra can be made to take home.
This series of classes is open to the public and is free with a 4-H or Cornell Cooperative Extension enrollment. Classes will be available every Friday to guide members to successful completion of their projects.
The 4-H office is looking for worsted weight yarn donations for the community service project. The public can obtain more information about this rewarding 4-H project and to register by calling Marylin Jones at 845-292-6180 or emailing email@example.com.
