Trainers refine sewing skills

THE Training of Trainers on Sewing, Pattern Drafting, and Sewing Machine Maintenance aims to refresh and refine the sewing skills for 30 participants over the next three days.
Minister for Women Mereseini Vuniwaqa who officially opened the training said at the end of the training, the participants would be able to pass on their knowledge and skills to other women.
“By the end of Friday, they will be able to train other Fijian women with basic skills on sewing, pattern drafting, and sewing machine maintenance,” Mrs Vuniwaqa said.
“These women already know how to sew. They’re skillful in sewing so this a refresher course for them and also to empower them to be able to fix sewing machines to maintain sewing machines, which is a challenge we’re facing in the ministry.”
She said participants from this training would be trainers for the ministry and would go out to facilitate trainings for other women in their localities.
