I'm always trying to enhance my sewing skills to a professional skill level. To accomplish that I enrolled in the Fashion Design program at Baltimore City Community College
(BCCC). The school offers several Associate Degrees in Fashion. I have learned so much while attending.
So far I have completed classes in Fashion Illustration, Draping and Flat Pattern Design. The skills that I have learned have enhanced my sewing skills and legitimized my sewing business. If you live in or around the Baltimore area, check the college out. If you can't commit to classes that meet for 15 weeks, twice a week. There is another option, The Sassy SEWer.
The Sassy SEWer's mission is to teach you the skill of sewing. The skills you learn can be applied to a facets of sewing. The Sassy SEWer's mission is to bring classes, such as fashion illustration, pattern making and draping to the home sewer. Most of us can't commit to 15 weeks, but could commit to 5 or 6 weeks. Most of us aren't looking to be a fashion designer, but would like to what's involved. Most of us would like to attend upper level sewing classes.
