Workroom Skills Class with Ann Johnson

June 5 - June 8

Many workrooms have reported significant business growth after taking this class. It is fast-paced, skill-packed, and sends you back to your work- room with two comprehensive workbooks and practiced techniques to improve your speed and quality. The primary emphasis throughout the 4-day class is developing a mindset to continually analyze your processes for maximum efficiency and quality. You graduate with a new level of confidence and essential skills that encourage your business to grow.

Topics we cover include: Fabrics (types and challenges), seams, hems, hand stitches, methods to apply trim, planning cuts, and cutting, blocking, handling bulk, tabling techniques and much more;  unusual tools and supplies used in the workrooms, or multiple uses for tools you already have; advanced techniques such as return options for all types of treatments, banding, additional control techniques such as Italian stringing and memory stitch, ensuring a flawless installation, machine maintenance and much more.

This class is for novice or veteran. A novice will jump start their business with proven efficiency techniques. Veterans will streamline their processes by shedding old inefficient habits. If time permits, students are encouraged to explore skills and techniques not specifically covered but that provide challenges to them.  

If you only take one class, make it this one! Contact Ann for a schedule of classes or to talk about hosting in your workroom.
