First Statewide 4-H Virtual Clothing Revue – Sew Exciting!!

The FIRST Statewide 4-H Virtual Clothing Revue was held on June 14 via Zoom with 18 counties participating and 37 entries exhibited. Participants modeled items they had sewed/knitted/or crocheted for themselves or someone else (with that person modeling it).  They connected virtually with a judge to share more about their exhibit and receive feedback for future project work


…our FANTASTIC judges Heidi Hensel-Buntrock and Merry Klemme! We could not have had this learning experience without their expertise and willingness to share their time and talents.
…the MOST AMAZING educational event visionary and coordinator, Sara Kolell. Her passion and commitment to the WI 4-H Clothing/Fashion Revue experience is unparalleled.
…our OUTSTANDING emcee and 4-H Alum, Adia Kolell. Her energy, enthusiasm, and experience helped pull the evening together.
…our SUPER SPECTACULAR staff, Sarah Thompson, Pam Bartoli, Tracy Keifenheim, Dana Berger, Ellen Bohn, and Wendi Holschbach for helping frame out, promote, support and ensure all the registration details and information was shared with 4-Her’s across the state and registered participants. We were all learning as we went and we are grateful for their willingness and openness to helping make this a statewide experience.

Congratulations to ALL of our PARTICIPANTS and EVEYRONE who supported them in and through their project work!!
