4-H conducts sixth annual Baskets of Love service project

The Adams County 4-H Program is conducting its sixth annual Baskets of Love community service project this holiday season. Participants will weave a wall basket to fill with goodies and give to local Meals on Wheels recipients. They will have the option of purchasing a kit for $10 that they may take and weave at home as a gift or holiday decoration. The service project is open to anyone in Adams County who would like to learn to weave, including youth and adults, 4-H members, advisors, parents, Scouts, church groups, and friends.

Basket weaving will take place on Nov. 14 in the Conference Room of the Adams County Government Service Center, 215 North Cross Street in West Union. The morning weaving session will last from 9:30 a.m. until noon, and the afternoon session will run from 1-3:30 p.m.

This year’s basket is a wall basket, ideal for hanging as a decoration and filling with holiday cards. The basket has a wooden handle and can be woven with red or green accents. It’s a good beginner basket that should take the average novice less than two hours to complete. Instructors and helpers for the weaving sessions include 4-H advisors Kim Baker and Teresa Lewis, 4-H members Kelsea Hamilton and Molly Bauman, and Carolyn Belczyk, Extension Educator, 4-H Youth Development.

Plans call for 30 baskets to be woven over the course of the day. After all baskets are completed, 4-H members will return in early December to help fill them with toiletries, candy, stationery items, and so on. They will also help wrap the baskets. Completed baskets will be ready for delivery to local Meals on Wheels recipients in mid-December, just in time for the holiday season. Drivers will select who on their route receives the baskets based on need.

This community service initiative enables participants to explore the traditional Appalachian craft of basket weaving. Youth who participate may consider taking basket-weaving as a 4-H project in 2016 either as self-determined or creative arts project. Additional weaving classes will be offered to 4-H’ers in the coming months if there is interest.

Registration is first-come, first served. Weavers may be youth or adults, 4-H members, friends, Scouts, church groups, parents, or advisors. To register, contact OSU Extension Adams County at 544-2339 for additional program details. Participation is limited to the first 15 registrants for each session.

Join 4-H members and advisors on Saturday, Nov. 14 to weave a Baskets of Love for local Meals on Wheels recipients. Baskets will take less than two hours to complete each day. Contact the Extension office at 544-2339 to register or for more details.
