‘My name is Ellie and I recently undertook three days’ work experience at Fashion-Enter Ltd’s factory in Newtown, Wales. After accepting a place at the University of Manchester to study Fashion Technology – my time at Fashion-Enter gave me a great insight into the business.
‘Over three days I learnt so much regarding the process of manufacturing clothing. Firstly, I saw the receiving of a pattern for a garment via email to printing and then cutting. I was then taught how to use the sewing machines from lockstitch to overlocker, the binding and cover stitch machines as well as the buttonhole machine. After practicing on pieces of scrap material on all these machines I made a t-shirt as well as a tote bag by day 3!
‘The work experience was really valuable and will help me going forward with my studies. Thank-you to all the team in Newtown.’
