Addison Bounds, 5th grader at Red River Elementary School attended 4-H Fashion Camp at Camp Grant Walker on January 20-21. She learned several different sewing techniques and made seven different projects while at the weekend retreat. She wrote a detailed account of her experiences while attending the camp.
Have you ever thought about what you would do at sewing camp? Well here it is, you will go behind the scenes with me, Addison Bounds of Aloha Fashion Paradise.
To start off with, it was at Camp Grant Walker 4-H Camp site. The cabins have tons of bunk beds, with a game closet in cabin 7. Which is the only one we went to. The helpers are really nice and are always willing to help. They show you the parts of the sewing machine and how to use them. They teach you the right and wrong side of fabric. They also taught me how to make a drawstring tote bag, coral reef rag flip-flops, emoji pillow, a phone pillow, sewing caddy, ribbon bookmark, and pin cushion. Lunch, breakfast, and supper were really good; and they even have snacks. You will be greeted by the red cross on the last day and will get to show off your creation of a fashion show. Also, on the last day you get a certificate of completion. I had a great time and met some great new friends. I can’t wait to attend my next 4-H camp.
