Willingness to work is paying off for a couple of cousins who have been sewing together for nearly a decade.
Christina Knief and Heather Comer are both long-time members of the Willing Workers 4-H Club advised by Kim Comer.
After 9 years of sewing projects, Heather Comer (pictured left) was awarded Best Overall Total Look for her colorful prom dress at the Senior Fashion Revue Tuesday night at the Logan County Fair.
Comer reacts to her big win.
Meantime, 11-year 4-H veteran Christina Knief took home the Best Constructed Garment Award for her wool coat.
Knief (pictured right) says all young people should seriously consider learning sewing skills.
Listen to comments from Knief.
The Junior and Senior Fashion Revues were combined into a one-night show this year because organizers say the number of entries was significantly down.
They attribute the decline to the lack of resourses for material in Logan County and the increasing cost of patterns.
