Why She Started The Academy
I am a pattern maker instructor, a few years ago, I struggled with how to cut and sew clothes, I didn’t know where to start from or where to learn the skill.
So I spent years looking for a solution to this problem from different places, and I ended up wasting years learning little to nothing, I wasted money and time yet nothing to show.
On different occasions, I would watch videos, read books even attend sewing groups tutorials all in the bit to learn. My sewing skills, interpretation of designs or perfect finishing was nothing to write-home-about.
I became so confused, worried, scared and frustrated because I knew I was losing out on this, I didn’t believe in myself again, as I couldn’t even sew anything meaningful for myself not to talk of making clothes for clients and I have spent a full year learning this from a so-called good tailor.
But I knew if I could get a hold of this skill it would help a great deal.
I knew I needed a way out very fast because it was starting to affect my self-esteem; I didn’t like the fact that I was always asking my husband for every single kobo I needed. It was really bad.
I finally found a way out.
Today the story is different, as I do not only sew well-fitted garments, I also now help and teach other women who are serious and desperate about learning how to sew and also use this skill to generate more money even if they are still doing their 9-5
It is difficult not to have a skill or source of income as a woman, especially as a married woman, attending this training will equip you with a skill that can give you a source of income.
It is also for women who already have a source of income but are looking to earn more on the side, and for anyone who is interested in learning how to cut and sew for different reasons.
Using her signature framework, you will learn better and faster and save time and money.
The Academy also;
1. Empowers women in their local community by making them independent.
2. Set up training and workshops on how to be financially stable.
3. Teaches women how to become support systems to the families they represent.
The next batch of training is coming up this month 20th July 2020. It is strictly for women who are serious and desperate about learning how to generate another stream of income.
