SYCAMORE – Children and teens can find a new hobby or expand their skills this summer in a week-long 4-H sewing or baking class. Participants do not need to belong to 4-H.

Sewing camp for ages 8 to 18 will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. daily June 16-20 at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore. This class can help students who have sewn simple things and are ready for a more advanced pattern, and those who have never sat down at a sewing machine before. Cost is $10 for 4-H members and $30 for non-members. Each student will work on their own project in class. Students must provide their own sewing machine, pattern, fabric and notions. There is a limited supply of machines that can be loaned to students without one. Register by May 30 at 815-758-8194.

A baking class for ages 11 to 18 will meet from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in the farm bureau building. Students will learn to make the best pie crust, the moistest cake and the freshest bread. Cost is $20 for 4-H members and $40 for non-members. Students will be asked to provide some of their own supplies. Register by may 30 at 815-758-8194. Space is limited.
