It's beginning to look a lot like the end of the semester!!! Fashion and Textile students are beginning to finish their PJ pants and are ready to stay cozy and warm this winter. Mrs. Carmichael's students have learned so many valuable skills this semester. One student said the skill she has had to practice the most is patience!!! Something we can all use a bit more of. What a wonderful "sewmester" it has been!
Fashion & Textiles have been learning about the difference between woven and knit fabrics. They have learned to knit and weave and the projects they have produced are as individual as the students. It has been a fun way to express creativity while learning new skills.
Kierra, who is taking Fashion & Textiles this semester, saw a need, had an idea and enriched our school community this week. After a recent visit to the nurse, Kierra found that there were no heating pads available to students. She decided to create reusable bags that can be heated and used to reduce pain. Nurse Megan was thankful for this generous donation. Thanks, Kierra, for enriching the lives of others at WACC/WCHS!!!
Mrs. Carmichael's Fashion and Textile students completed their first project, a pillow-case. Many students had never used a sewing machine before taking this class. They are learning many new skills and are doing a great job!
