For those participating in Clothing and Textiles, the 4-H member will complete six learning experiences with the assistance of club leaders and/or parents. These experiences can be completed in project group meetings or individual study.You do not have to sew to complete the project. 4-H’ers can select experiences to fit their needs, such as buying ready-to-wear, wardrobe planning, clothing construction, wardrobe care, modeling, grooming, fibers and much more. They can also choose to sew in addition to other experiences. The experiences prepare 4-H’ers for project activities. 

Fashion Show

The Fashion Show is designed for 4-H members to showcase their skills in buying and construction. You will create a clothing or fashion item, turn in paperwork explaining your item, complete an interview with a panel of judges, and last but not least, model the outfit on the runway.


Fashion Storyboard

The 4-H Fashion Storyboard is an industry-inspired method of displaying original designs. The storyboard “tells the story” of the designer’s idea. The storyboard includes original illustrations, flats, and more to promote the design


Duds to Dazzle

During Duds to Dazzle, teams of 3 to 5 receive textiles and each team has 60 minutes to create a new product using item from the supply closet. Each team provides their own supply kit (Supply kit list found in Duds to Dazzle guide). LINK The teams then present their item to a team of judges. You may also be tested on what you have learned about how the clothing & textile industry impacts the environment, specifically the waste stream.
