As an organisation, Parentskills2go has been able to engage parents and found out that:
- Parent has a desire to learn sewing but find it difficult to read and understand conventional dressmaking patterns especially if they are from migrant communities.
- The cost of learning to sew is expensive for parents on low income
- The lack of childcare provision for parents who want to develop their skills in sewing
The programme will take place once a week for 10 weeks at the centre for 8-10 women with a creche provided on sight for those with young children.
It will take place for 2 hours between 10am-12pm or 1-pm It will end with a celebration of work they have done
With the help of a professional tutor, parents will learn a number of things including measurements, freestyle cuts etc
