A Pattern Grading (2) workshop (for style patterns) will be held on October 15-16 . The weekend dates have been chosen to allow employees in the fashion industry to attend.

As a result of enquiries and requests this popular workshop is being scheduled for the following dates: September 30th to October 2nd and also November 11th to 13th.  We have chosen the Friday/Saturday/Sunday dates to enable those with weektime work commitmets to attend. Here are a few comments from recent participants:

“Thank you so much- this course has given me inspiration to get my sewing machine back out –not to mention helping a lot with my career at the moment.” Samara Kurta, Uniform Specialists, July 2011

“Wonderful workshop. Thank you both so very much.  Looking forward to attending more in the future. Feeling a lot better about it all (pattern making etc) now.” Lynne Stewardson, Bulls, July 2011

“I found the course extremely informative and really absorbing! I loved the hands-on style of the course.” Sharon Hebden, Long Bay College, Torbay, April 2011.

As a result of feedback and requests from clients we have changed and extended some of our previously advertised workshops to provide a greater choice- see workshop calendar for details.

We are also running 2 workshops “From Design to Production for Industry”  and “Garment Specification and Grading for Industry” during both September and November.

Our new workshop flyer is now available offering a combination of creative and technical topics for fashion designers, educators and students.

Due to the popularity of our student specials we are offering them again during the school holiday break.

Don’t miss out send for your brochure today you won’t be disappointed.

As a gesture of goodwill to our loyal clients Pattern Architects has not increased the cost of our workshops or our pattern resources.

To accommodate the time constraints of  workers’ commitments the Fashion Pattern Development 1 workshop has been moved from the previously advertised dates in October to November 19-21. We hope to see you in November for a busy and rewarding workshop.
