4-H Clothing Construction   arrow

4-H Clothing Construction Project

Members will not only learn the basics of clothing and other project construction, but also explore purchasing, selection, appearance, and care of clothing and textile. The clothing project has subcategories including artistic clothing and clothing construction. 

Tip Sheet


E-Log / Record Book

4-H Record Books are also called e-Records. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. The links to e-Records in the specific project areas are below. Record books are turned in at Interview Judging before our County Fair. In June, you will need to schedule an interview for each of your project areas and bring your record book with you to Interview Judging the week of the Larimer County 4-H Fair.

You can find more instructions – including videos – about how to update your record books here (link opens in a new tab).
