Local 4H Members Place Well at Utah State Fair


4-H'ers Kylee and Brooklyn Tweddell got "Best of Show" at the State Fair on their sewing projects

Press Release

Local 4-H participants Kylee and Brooklyn Tweddell did well with their sewing projects at the Utah State Fair. They both received “Best of Show” on their exhibits. Kylee displayed her home sewn steam punk vintage outfit on a mannequin complete with props appropriate to the era. Brooklyn received a “Best of Show” on her pleated skirt. Kylee also received a “Best of Show” locally at the Carbon County Fair for her exhibit and Brooklyn received a State Blue on her skirt, which qualified them to take their exhibits to the Utah State Fair.

“Sewing has become a lost art since you can purchase outfits easier than make them but we are teaching kids much more than sewing. They learn leadership skills at camps, to keep records and submit them, along with learning new project skills each year. In the sewing program they also get a chance to create and wear a “one-of-a-kind” outfit.” said their grandmother and sewing instructor, Lyla Grogan.

Kylee Tweddell has been in 4-H for eight years and Brooklyn for five years. They are members of the Carbon Junior Livestock 4-H Club. They, along with their brother Dallen, show and raise lambs for their market lamb project and have gardening and cooking projects. 4-H has been a family tradition in the Tweddell family for over 30 years.

Both Mike and Kristi Tweddell were ten year 4-H’ers and their parents, Keith and Lyla Grogan and Lee and Terrie Tweddell, were also 4-H members and leaders in the local 4-H program.
