  • January 10th – January Kit Orders Due - Our January 4-H Project Kit will feature Knit Hats! Knitting is a perfect wintertime activity. This month we’re highlighting the art of knitting and the Hat Not Hate movement featuring supplies to make blue hats as an anti-bullying campaign. Each kit has a loom, instructions, and supplies to make 2 winter hats. One kit is provided per family with additional blue yarn included for families with more than 2 youth. Learn a new skill and then use the supplies included to continue to make winter hats in any color you like! The cost is $10 per kit and orders are due January 10th.
