Next to food production, the textiles and apparel industries are the most vital to our world. In this curriculum, students learn to evaluate fiber and textile materials based on the material’s characteristics. Students learn basic sewing skills as well as safety rules to follow when operating a sewing machine. Then students use a sewing/embroidery machine to personalize and complete a tote bag and an apron to keep or give as a gift. They are also introduced to textile technology and the various uses of textiles within different industries. Plus, students learn the skill set and personality traits needed to start an entrepreneurial sewing venture.
