Virtual State Fashion Revue
"State Fashion Revue: Rebooted"
State Fashion Revue is a virtual event during May 2021 as part of State Field Day. The 5 categories are continued from 2020. The requirement that a member must be enrolled in the sewing project is dropped for 2021. This means all 5 categories are open to all 4-H members regardless of project enrollment. Junior, Intermediate,and Senior members who are County Winners in the 5 state categories are eligible to enter 2021 State Fashion Revue.
There is no fee to enter SFR. Each county may qualify one member per category and age division. See the Participant Information page for more information and the schedule.
Registration is online April 10-30 at 5 PM. Evaluations are online via Zoom on May 8, 15, and 16. Evaluation time slots are pre-assigned for each category. Results will be announced online during the State Field Day Awards.
The SFR Committee is working hard to facilitate this event in a new format. Scorecards have been revised and converted to Google forms.
Needed are adult Evaluators and teen Room Hosts for May 8/15/16. Registration is by online survey, open now. We especially need approved 4-H volunteer leaders as evaluators so we can utilize breakout rooms. To register, go to the Volunteer page

2021 Service Projects
Port Pillows are small and easy to sew out of soft fabric. They are used and much appreciated by patients undergoing chemotherapy infused through a port in their upper chest. The pillow attaches to the seat belt to cushion the port and reduce pain. Print the flyer and start sewing!
If you have a sewing machine, cotton fabric and beginner skills, you can make face masks for your family, friends, and local medical facilities. Adding a piece of wire in the nose section helps the mask fit better. You can use the twisty ties from grocery store produce, thin wire, or pipe cleaners.
Use elastic that is 1/4" or narrower. You might need to cut the elastic longer or shorter depending on the face width. You can also use 18" lengths of ribbon or make narrow bias tape.
Add 1 or 2 layers of a tightly woven fabric between the 2 outer fabric layers for better filtration. Suitable fabrics are flannel, sew-in interfacing, or plain cotton. Pre-shrink all fabric and elastic.
To make 12 masks with the JOANN’s pattern you’ll need:
- 1/2 yard each tightly woven 100% cotton fabric that can be washed & dried on hot. Use 2 different colors or prints, one color for each side of the mask
- 1/2 yard lightweight fusible interfacing
- 5 yards 1/4” or 1/8” flat elastic
All 4-H'ers are encouraged to make the service project items, collect, and deliver them in their home counties. Please let the SFR committee know how many were made and donated.
