sewing skills 2go
  A 10-week sewing programme for lone parents in the local community that will enable them to develop skills that can lead to further training and employment
The aim of the course is to encourage positive change and enable parents to realise their potential and fulfil their goals.
 The course will focus on freehand cutting patterns as opposed to the conventional dressmaking pattern.
The course is targeted at lone parents from less privileged backgrounds who want to develop or learn a skill that can enhance their abilities and promote their mental and emotional well being, reduce isolation and increase confidence and self-esteem


As an organisation, Parentskills2go has been able to engage parents and found out that:
  1. 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.
  2. The cost of learning to sew is expensive for parents on low income
  3. The lack of childcare provision for parents who want to develop their skills in sewing

Project Delivery

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
