Every week throughout August until early September FCFTA Leicester is running a Summer Special: Introduction to Industrial Sewing and Garment Making”

This week-long course is the perfect taster – suitable to those that want a career in the garment industry but also those that want to learn to make clothes for fun. 

This week our learners really excelled and made some fantastic garments. 



Sushy made all of these garments during the course. 

FCFTA Manager Jackie said: “Sushy had some experience with using a domestic machine, however she wanted to learn how to use an industrial machine, to understand the different types of stitches and techniques available. It was great to see her confidence grow as the week progressed – and her creative flair really shone through with the garments that she produced.”

Sushy (Learner) added: “This really is a wonderful course, such great value, the facilities and machines are superband the tutors are excellent, you get so much support. The best course I have ever done.”
