4-H Clothing and Textiles Project Opportunities:

Springtime involves many 4-H projects to include Clothing and Textiles.  The fashion show includes construction and buying divisions. There is also the Fashion Story Board contest and Duds to Dazzle contest.

The Duds to Dazzle contest is patterned after the Food Challenge. It is a team event where teams of up to 5 members have 1 hour to turn a “dud” into a “dazzle” with a sewing kit and a furnished supply closet. Design categories are wearable, accessory/jewelry and non-wearable. The team is also responsible for giving a 5-minute presentation to a panel of judges.

Contest dates for fashion show, fashion story board and Duds to Dazzle are as follows:

Fashion Show Fashion Story Board for senior age division – April 30 in San Angelo

Fashion Show and Fashion Story Board for junior and intermediate age division – July 13in Burnet
