Clothing Selection Workshop

An opportunity has surfaced to assist our 4-Hers to better understand how they can make clothes work for them. We will be talking about styles, shapes, colors… all those things that can help a person emphasize the “good” about their body shape and de-emphasize the “not-so-goods,” which we all have. This is NOT a “sales event” but an opportunity to learn why some things look great on one person and not so good on another and options for what we can choose instead. We’ll have door prizes and other give-aways and lots of fun trying on clothes!

RESERVATIONS NECESSARY!!! Limited enrollment – so, make your reservation NOW!

Please pass this information on to all your Intermediate & Senior 4-H girls! (Sorry, the store doesn’t carry sizes for our younger 4-Hers or for guys. L)
