Second Annual Fabric Sale Fundraiser


The second annual fabric sale fundraiser is being held to support the Oswego County 4-H Program, part of Cornell Cooperative Extension. This sale will be held Saturday, August 15, 2015 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 an enormous stockpile of items, and like last year, everything is priced to sell, with many great deals to be found. All fabric is being sold by the piece at just $2.00 a yard. Pieces are sold as is and will not be cut into smaller yardage. Credit and debit cards will not be accepted. A variety of fabrics are available: dressmaking, home decorating, polar fleece, vintage, quilting, seasonal, and craft panels. In addition to fabric, there are notions, patterns, books and booklets, quilting frames, rotary cutters, and sewing machines. Knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, and cross stitch supplies can also be found. A more detailed listing of fabric and specialty items can be found on the following website: www.thatscooperativeextension.org. (Coming Soon)

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County would like to thank the community in advance for their support of this wonderful fundraiser. The sale’s proceeds benefit the local 4-H program. Oswego County 4-H Program is open to all youth ages 5 to 19 who want to have fun, learn new skills, and explore the world. Youth who participate in 4-H find a supportive environment and many opportunities for hands-on or experiential learning about things that interest them. They also get what all young people need to succeed in life -- the confidence, compassion, and connections with caring adults, and opportunities to make contributions to their communities. The mission of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program is to unleash the power of youth and adults through diverse opportunities that meet community needs. 4-H programs are offered in a wide variety of formats and places because they're designed to fit the interests and needs of the diverse young people who live in Oswego County’s rural and urban communities.
