DeGraff area resident Heather Comer recently received the highest sewing honors at the Ohio State Fair, being named the overall winner of the Ohio 4-H Fashion Revue.
The award was based not on one particular project, but on her overall sewing accomplishments and achievements throughout her 10-year 4-H sewing career.
At the 2012 Ohio State Fair, she also received the runner-up award at the Ohio 4-H Fashion Revue.
As part of her award, the 2013 Riverside High School graduate was presented with a Pfaff Sewing Machine.
Her two entries in the state fair this year were for Clothing For Your Career and Outer Layers, and she received an Outstanding of the Day Award and a Wool Award for the latter category.
During the 2013 Logan County Fair, Ms. Comer was honored with the best overall total look award at the Senior Fashion Revue.
Other local Outstanding of the Day winners at the state fair included Malaina Jenkins, Sew Fun; Carrie Robb, Athletic Sportswear; Allie Knapp, Tops for Tweens; and Allison Knief, Loungewear.
In addition, other Logan County participants who presented sewing projects at the state fair included Alexa Klingler, Sew for Others (with her sister, Ava, modeling her project); Erica Wilson, Creative Costumes; Kyndra Strayer, Dress Up Daywear; Lindsey Hall, Clothes for High School; Allie Gentis, Jumpers and Sundresses; and Kelsie Blair, Formals.
