“L to R: 1st row: Sarah Pineiro, Lily Whetsell, Kaelee Whipple, James Fay, and Hannah Hricko. 2nd row: Rebecca Hricko, Charissa Hricko, and MariKay VanFleet.”
Those members were: Hannah, Rebecca, and Charissa Hricko; James Fay; Sarah Pineiro; MariKay Van Fleet; Lily Whetsell; and Kaelee Whipple.
Over fifty members from Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Bradford, Sullivan, Tioga, and Wyoming Counties were judged with their garments in appearance, fit, design, fashion, and construction techniques. In addition, participants attended workshops on modeling and sewing notions, and created blankets for Project Linus who gives them to children in need.
The event included a program about the history of 4-H sewing in recognition of the 100th Birthday of Pennsylvania 4-H. The day concluded with a fashion show after which honor awards were given. Six Lackawanna County members received recognition for their outstanding work.
Lily Whetsell was named winner and Kaelee Whipple was given honorable mention in the junior wearable division year 1 category. Hannah Hricko received honorable mention in the junior wearable year 2 division. Rebecca Hricko was named a winner and Charissa Hricko and MariKay VanFleet were named alternates in the senior division.
Since placing in the senior division, Rebecca, Charissa, and MariKay will be representing the region at the state fashion revue held on the main campus of Penn State University on August 8. Members will be competing against 4-H’ers from across the state for the top 12 places. During the event, they will attend workshops and model their handmade garments for judging.
Congratulations to all of the Glenburn Sewing Club members and to leaders, Hilda Lewis and Ann Northup, for a job well done!
