This CLOTHING ALTERATION COURSE at The Sewing Workshop™, is the only course in Brisbane who trains the students who wish to embark on a career in clothing alterations to obtain a job as an Alteration hand, start their own business or for those who would like to learn how to alter their clothing for themself and their family.

Ana Fataccioli, founder of The Sewing Workshop™ has realized that this business is a boom business these days. Why??... Because the clothing imported from overseas, in shops or even from the internet, are so cheap that sometimes it is impossible to resist to buying (especially for those who don’t have sewing skills)... but... Also we realize the fitting is not the same as made to measure, and people need somebody or somewhere to go to get their clothing altered.

That is why, Ana in 2005, set up her clothing alteration business “Alter to Fit”© which operates together on the same premises as the School. The school and the shop are linked together. Theory and practice.... The Sewing Workshop™ and Alter to Fit© are authorities in Brisbane in Clothing Alterations, in teaching and learning.

In the last 5 years Ana has gained even more experience in alteration techniques, tricks of the trade, new alteration techniques, timing, prices per alteration, and aspects related to managing a clothing alteration business... From Jeans... to Bridal.©

So, Ana, in her usual attitude to pass all her knowledge, she developed this training program in four levels, and those are the techniques you could learn on each of them.

LEVEL 1 PROGRAM:

* Hems for trousers, skirts, blouses, tops, jeans.
* Trouser’s hems with cuffs.
* Zippers: centred , lapped, invisible, fly front zipper.
* Repairs: sew rips and splits, pulled seams, tears, holes, mending, creative mending.
* Sew buttons and buttonholes by machine.
* Time management and taking records.

Level I course duration: one block of 5 lessons. (The student should have basic knowledge of sewing before entering in this training program).

What to Bring to lessons: Your sewing equipment and second hand clothing. So, by doing alterations for friends, relatives or yourself, while you are doing the course even at a cheap rates, the course pays for itself, and you have your material for learning.

Certificate of attendance and completion of the program will be given to the student.
