Clothing & Textile Showcase

Every Spring Delaware 4-H’ers have the opportunity to participate in the Clothing and Textile Showcase. This annual event allows 4-H members to show their consumer savvy or sewing construction skills as they participate in the competition.  4-H members can compete in the Ready to Wear Contest or the Clothing Construction Showcase. Participants can show off their consumer and fashion planning skills by presenting a “Ready to Wear” ensemble.

Participants must look for bargains and quality and also plan a complete outfit and accessorize around their purchased article. Participants in the Clothing Construction Showcase chose to sew – creating garments that they modeled.  They were evaluated on the construction of their garment and their modeling skills. Approximately 35 Delaware 4-H’ers participated statewide.
