  • Kids Summer Sewing 2024

    Summer sewing sessions at Boys & Girls Club are scheduled for June 17-20 and July 8-11, 2024. Morning classes are 9:00-12:00. There will also be a workday for volunteers on June 5. The children are excited to learn and/or advance their skills at machine and hand sewing. The first day project is a star shaped pillow. Then they will advance to completing a small quilt from 10-inch squares with a border, stitched together with batting and backing, turned and hand tied. Children are third grade or older.

    Volunteers are needed to guide the learners to complete their projects. Class is limited in number based on the volunteers available. This year all volunteers must complete a background check prior to working with children which can be completed online https://form.jotform.com/240315762121142 or return in to the Boys & Girls Club office, 315 N Denton St, Gainesville, TX 76240
