Welcome to my Page!

Welcome to your webpage! I am so excited to be on this journey with you as you learn new knowledge and skills about the world of Fashion & Textiles.  One of the most important things you will be learning is sewing techniques and construction.  I have tried to choose projects that you will enjoy and use that will also teach you important skills.  Your desire and dedication to learning is the key.  

You will develop thinking and problem solving skills along the way.  These will serve you well in all areas of your life.  Let's get started!!!

Sewing Notes

Here are the concepts we have covered so far in Fashion & Textiles!

May19 eLearning Assignment

Your eLearning assignment is to find 5 projects you would like to complete in the future.  These can be from any web-site or Pinterest.  This can involve sewing, knitting, weaving or any other fabric art.  Open a Word or Google Doc.  Paste the picture and web-site into your document.  Add a complete sentence about why you chose that item and what you would need to know and do in order to complete this project.  

Upload your document to Canvas when finished.  This must be submitted by May 23rd by 11:59 pm in order to be counted as present for this eLearning session.

If you had to choose a career in the Fashion Industry, what job would you choose and why? 2-3 or more sentences.

What career would you not want and why? 1-2 sentences

Man Made Fibers

For this lesson, please watch the two YouTube videos below.  Open the link called, "Man Made Fiber Chart" and then open the "Clothing Fibers" PDF link to complete the chart.  You will take notes from the "Clothing Fibers" PDF document to describe the advantages and disadvantages of each fiber listed.  If the PDF does not open, there is a link at the top of my "Web-Links" on this page that you can use.  When finished, you will search the internet for pictures of the fabric listed and read information you find interesting.

April 17 eLearning Day

Please follow these instructions for your eLearning day. Go to the pageLink to the right of this box and click on "Pattern Markings."  This will open an Infographic which shows and describes typical pattern markings you will see when sewing with a pattern.  

Open the Word Doc below this item titled, "Pattern Markings."  Below each of the markings on this worksheet, write when and where you will see that symbol when using a pattern.  Include any information that will help you know how to lay your pattern out.
