Add To Your Fashion Skill Set This September – Pattern Cutting & Stitching

While designers bag all the glory in this industry we call fashion, a collection is the result of a collaboration with various crafts-people. They say ‘behind every designer is a skilled pattern cutter’, in the case of Alexander McQueen he combined both, and that intricate knowledge combined with his heady imagination proved to be a brilliant combination.

Roles for highly skilled pattern cutters and stitchers are always in demand, that’s why at the FTA we have continuous courses in both. The next six-week courses in Patterns and Stitching are due to commence from Monday 3rd September, they provide insightful, hands-on training with the option to continue on to more advanced levels.

We also have availability and free places for those that are unemployed, looking for work and receiving valid benefits.

Here’s what some of our previous learners have said about the courses:

“I cannot thank you enough or thank the tutors enough for such an amazing experience here and I’m very proud to have completed Levels 1 & 2 of my Industrial Sewing course. I have witnessed so many wonderful moments, watching others grow – as I have been improving on my basic sewing skills.” Val – Stitching Academy Levels 1 & 2

“This course is necessary for anyone that wants to go into design, it’s very necessary – this is a foundational course and it will help you understand what making is all about because this is the beginning of everything.” Chionma – Perfect Patterns Level 1
