FCFTA student Sally talks about her learning journey….

Our amazing learner Sally has completed her Level 1 Stitching course and has now progressed on to the Pattern Cutting course. She is a designer and would like to create her own products. Here is a short interview/feedback from Sally:

How did you find out about our course?

Sally: I found out about the course from the trade and fashion show @Leicester Meet and Greet organised by Fashion-Enter.

Why did you want to take up this course?

Sally: I am designer, however I have no knowledge on stitching and pattern cutting. I wanted to get trained from proper tutors and on proper industrial machines.

What did you learn and how did you feel the course went?

Sally: The Level 1 Stitching course I thought would be easy for me as I have some sewing knowledge. However, it was challenging, I realised I didn’t know how to sew properly. Using the industrial machines was a big task, however I got through it with the help of the tutors and now I can stitch perfectly.

What do you plan to do next?

Sally: I am now progressing on to the Pattern Cutting course. I had a look at the overview and units covered on this course and it’s really amazing. As a designer I would like to make my own patterns.

Would you recommend the course / FCFTA to others?

Sally: Yes, of course, it’s a great place with amazing, supportive and helpful tutors and a high standard of equipment.
