Are you enrolled to take a food and nutrition or sewing and textiles project this year? Come to our clinic to learn more about your project and receive a lot of resources and help. We also encourage you to bring your project and receive guidance and ask any questions you might have about the project. These clinics will be facilitated by members and advisors of the Food and Fashion Board. The clinics will be held on Saturday, April 30th at the Extension office. The clothing and textiles clinic will be from 9-11 a.m. and the food and nutrition clinic will be from 12-2 p.m. If you plan to attend one or both of these clinics, please call the Extension office or e-mail Mancuso.firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by Monday, April 25th.
Yours with Every Stitch- Apprenticeship Program
Hello! My name is Danielle Park, and I am a 4-H alumni who has a passion for sewing and teaching others how to sew. I graduated last year from Calvert High School and started my own sewing and alterations business that is located in the heart of downtown Tiffin. I always wanted to pursue a career that nurtured my love of sewing and creating, and after deciding that fashion school wasn’t for me, I began building what is now my business, Yours with Every Stitch. Following the opening of my shop in July, and my ribbon cutting in October, I have received overwhelming support and business from the community. Mending, alterations, and sewing as a service in general are all extremely needed things in our community, and in most of the country. Because of my love for the 4-H program, I would like to extend an opportunity to local members that are interested in pursuing sewing as a career, or simply learning more about sewing as a future career option. Interested members will have the opportunity to become an apprentice at Yours with Every Stitch and will learn what it’s like to run a local business and sew for a wide variety of customers. Apprentices will be taught simple alterations like how to hem a pair of pants, marking items for sewing, and whatever else they are willing to learn! Please feel free to contact me with any interest or questions. I can also be flexible with schedules and am willing to work with members individually to find a schedule that will work for both of us. Thank you for your time and consideration, and for keeping sewing alive through 4-H!
I ask that potential apprentices be of at least an intermediate level of sewing (comfortable using and operating a sewing machine and using scissors to cut material).

4-H Partners with JOANN for ‘Clovers for Kids’ Campaign
National 4-H has developed a partnership with the company JOANN and they do a campaign each spring to help raise money for 4-H. This year the campaign has already started and will run through April 30.
- Ohio will receive back 70% of the in-store campaign dollars raised.
- Online purchases go back to National 4-H because their system can’t track by state.
Looking for a weekend craft project? Check out this promotion with 4-H and JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores. The Ohio 4-H Foundation will use the funds received for mini-grants to local county 4-H programs. Give at your local JOANN store between now and April 30. Every dollar makes a difference in helping a young person find their SPARK.
