Sing it with me y'all!!

"I'm so excited... and I just cant hide it!!"

Okay so, over the last several months, many of my nearest and dearest have embarked on various degrees of higher learning. Some finishing a degree program started many years ago. Some studying something completely new.

Needless to say, I was inspired and decided that it was past time to supplement my 15years of garment production experience. In hopes of, both, making myself more marketable, but to also be more knowledgeable in the way my company's business is changing now.

I said all that to say, I walked myself over to F.I.T on Friday and enrolled into one of their Professional Development Programs... Product Development, to be precise.

My first class actually starts next Saturday, 'Fabrication -Everything You Need to Know'. That is EXACTLY the kind of knowledge I have been wanting to get for both my work and craft life!

Then my next class is (if you can stand it) 'How to Build a Better Garment'.... I know this will be geared toward bulk garment production, BUT STILL!!

It's a certificate program, not a full fledged degree. But as I never really liked school, baby steps.

And best of all.... NO EXAMS!! I'll say it again, I'm so excited!!
