Project Information

 Members in the Massachusetts 4-H Program are required to carry at least one project area during the year.  There are a wide variety of projects that members may choose from.  As a member of the Nifty Needles 4-H Club members are involved with the project area of Clothing.  This involves anything that a member may learn about that topic from purchasing, consumerism, sewing technique, textiles, fashion, careers, and the care and repair of garments.  Our club members are also involved with Community Service and Public Speaking.  Others may also be involved with Leadership Development.  Members are to have year-long goals for what they will learn and make a plan for learning them.  These are journaled by the member during the year in their personal 4-H Record Book.

If a member has chosen a project that the club is not involved with a project mentor is recommended in order to help the member to grow in that project area.  It is also encouraged that the member share this learning with others in their 4-H club, community, county, etc.     This list of MA projects areas are below.  Some of these areas  may have 4-H curriculum to guide the member in their learning process.  To find available 4-H juried curriculum go to
