Carnival Lights Showcase 4-H Clothing Garments

Seventeen youth from Buffalo County displayed their talent at the 2019 Clothing Revue, Country Nights & Carnival Lights on June 18, at the Roger Marten Community Center. Youth ranging from kindergarten to seniors in high school participated in this year’s Clothing Revue. Exhibitors were judged on the criteria of fit, style, pattern, and fabric selection for the youth; whereas at the fair they will be judged on the physical construction of the garment. The 4-H Clothing Project teaches youth how to purchase material and a pattern, create the garment by sewing and following a pattern, and finding accessories to match the garment that was created. After the judging of 33 entries was completed, a style show was put on for all exhibitors to model one of their outfits. The judge for the evening was Fay Passow. The Clothing Revue Project members would like to give a special thank you to the Marten Center for holding the event, Judge Fay Passow for giving the youth constructive feedback, Laurie Bauer for recording results and feedback, Marie Ritscher for setting up, and the volunteers that help the young members sew their own garments.
