Anney Archer tells about her 4-H experience

Hello!  My name is Anney Archer. I am 14 years old. I am a member of Ada Barnyard Farmers 4-H club.

Last year I took Sundresses and Jumpers. In this project I had to sew a sundress or jumper.  I chose a sundress and I even had to learn how to put ribbon, as a trim, on my sundress. 

I also had to learn how to put in a zipper. That was even a first for my mom, too. I really liked the extra time I got to spend with my mom. From shopping for material and accessories, to the time we got to spend sewing my dress.
