Announcing Stitch This!, a 16-hour fashion design competition for Iowa high-school youth inspired by the hit TV show “Project Runway”. The competition will involve teams of youth working together to deconstruct wedding dresses and design them into new wearable garments, which will culminate into a runway-style fashion show during the 2009 Iowa State Fair. Visit www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/statefair/stitchthis.htm for more information, the application, and photos of the dresses. Please note that this event is open to youth not yet enrolled in 4-H. Application deadline is June 1, 2009; winners will be announced July 1. We have sent information to all FCS teachers in the state to encourage all youth to apply. Please distribute to all 4-H youth who may be interested in participating or attending the event. For more information contact Shelly Greving, email@example.com or 515-294-1607.
