A big welcome to Fola a beginner student who started yesterday! It's great to have this lovely lady join the program! Fola is a beautiful woman from Nigeria living in Barrie who has a desire to learn tailoring as well as pattern drafting and I'm happy she chose me to teach her!!
The homework for this week is to learn the terminology of sewing and understand the meanings by actually getting fabric and checking the grain, warp and weft yarns and marking them right on the fabric. You will need to explain to me what notches means and their uses. Basically I will be quizzing you on the contents of the page. I would like to see/hear the definitions in your own words please.
The other part of the homework is to perfect the buttonholes done by the sewing machine and really get to know your sewing machine.
Next class we will be starting with the basic skirt draft so please bring some paper for drafting, pencils and lots of erasers!
Have a great day
