Van Zandt County 4-H members of the newly formed Fashion Spin Club represented the county at the District 4 Competition April 16 at Texas A&M-Commerce and came home with a win.

 4-H SPIN (Special Interest) Club leader Carolyn Davis instructed all three beginner seamstress on how to sew their projects. 

“These members have gained skills and knowledge that many adult seamstress lacks due to the outstanding leadership skills offered by volunteer leader Carolyn Davis in which she has so graciously shared with these young ladies,” Family and Consumer Science county Extension Agent Melisa Rhodes said. “We are looking forward to seeing some outstanding projects in the future as these three young ladies all sewed their outfits with a three week period meeting once or twice a week.”

This young group of seamstresses plan to start sewing next year’s projects in the fall so they will have ample time to create even better projects for the competition, Rhodes said.
