    Walton County 4-H is buzzing with programs galore! Don't miss your opportunity to take advantage of these positive youth development programs that teach your children life skills that will stay with them for years after their 4-H experience.

    Stitch Perfect (SPRING BREAK March 19-21, 2018)
    Any youth ages 8-18 interested in learning how to sew, quilt, hand stitch, knit, cross-stitch or just learn some neat new no-sew projects with 4-H, please join us for our annual STITCH PERFECT SPRING BREAK SEWING CAMP! Every year the Chautauqua Quilters Guild comes in and teaches our youth an amazing life skill...SEWING...which is a skill many adults (like Ms. Baylee and Ms. Jena) lack now-a-days. So come take advantage of our 3 day camp and learn not only how to execute some amazing stitch work but also to have "SEW" much fun learning about the history of this fine art and the agricultural products that make it possible. Hurry, spots are filling fast, only 10 for beginner sewers and 10 for advanced sewers! Contact 850-892-8172 or<> for registration information.
