The eagerly-awaited fabric sale fundraiser to support the Oswego County 4-H Program, part of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego, is happening soon. The Fifth Annual Fabric Sale will be held on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Believer’s Chapel located at 5375 State Route 3, Mexico, New York.

The Oswego County 4-H Program has collected donations from all over the county and attendees will find many great deals. All fabric is being sold by the piece at just $2.00 a yard. Pieces are sold as is. Cash or checks only. A variety of fabrics are available: dressmaking, home decorating, polar fleece, vintage, retro, quilting, seasonal, and craft panels. In addition to fabric, there are sewing notions, patterns, books and booklets, quilting frames, rotary cutters, and even sewing machines. Knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, cross-stitch and some crafting supplies can also be found.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County would like to thank the community in advance for their support of this wonderful fundraiser. The proceeds from this sale benefit the Oswego County 4-H Program, which is open to all youth ages 5 to 19 who want to learn new skills, explore the world, and have fun doing so. Youth who participate in 4-H find a supportive environment and many opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning. They also get what all young people need to succeed in life - confidence, compassion, and connections with caring adults. Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program works to unleash the power of youth and adults through diverse opportunities that meet community needs. Oswego County’s 4-H programs meet in a variety of places and formats to meet the diverse interests and needs of the county’s rural and urban communities.
