There are plenty of opportunities for employment in the sewn product industry, and never enough sewers. The goal of this class is to get you ready to seek employment in this field.
These classes are designed for beginner stitchers, or one who has experience on home machines, but wants to learn how to sew on industrial machines with the aim to be able to acquire employment.
Machines learned and used in this series are lock stitch machines and sergers.
Other machine types will be referred to and demonstrated.
Students will learn –
How to thread and wind a bobbin (on appropriate machines) for your machine
Thread tension and adjustments
Understanding thread and needle sizes
Trouble shooting and maintenance
How to sew straight hem
How to work on different weights of fabrics
Various seam closings
How to sew corners
How to sew curves
Various machine stitches and why one would use one over the other
How to use a serger to overlock or close seams
The Sewing process for production is different than that of a home sewer. The sewing techniques used in manufacturing are what will be taught. Upon completing required proficiency levels, the student will receive a certificate of proficiency. We partner with many Cut and Sew houses that are looking for at least that entry level of proficiency and people to employ with that proficiency.
