If you enjoy making crafts, learning about fashion, want to learn how to sew, making new friends, experiencing college dorm life and having a ton of fun, then 4-H Line and Design Camp is the camp for you.   

4-H Line and Design Camp was held at UT Martin July 8-10. Attending from Henry County were Claire Dickson, Courtney Rhodes and me. It is for anyone in grades 5-12.

When we arrived at camp, my mom helped us settle into our dorm room. After that, we had an orientation and the fun began. 

My favorite activity at camp was the sewing classes. I loved learning how to sew. I liked learning the parts of the sewing machine, how to thread a bobbin and how to thread the machine. 

We made our own tote bag and I actually use mine a lot. We also got a chance to make a headband. 

The other activities were a lot of fun, too. We made our own wooden tray with our initials in the middle, used material to cover tiles and make our own set of coasters, learned about zentangle and zentangled our own apron, learned about good consumer skills and shopping and learned about fashion and was able to participate in a fashion show. 

I also loved eating every meal in the UT Martin cafeteria. There were so many choices each time and you could get a little from each line if you wanted. The food was so good. Swimming in that huge swimming pool was fun, too.

The dorm life was so much fun, too. It was really like being in college for three days. Claire and I roomed together and Courtney and a girl from Hardeman County were our suitemates. 

I met so many new friends, too, from all over West Tennessee. It was a great camp and I will go again for sure. You would love it, too.
