BURTON, Ohio — During the Sew Sew Sweet 4-H sewing club’s June meeting, a member brought up her idea for her community project. She is collecting sewing materials for the kids in Africa who cannot afford all of these materials for clothes.

The club would appreciate if you would donate some fabric, seam rippers, easy patterns and thread.
