Master Sewing and Design and Professional Certificate Program. The Master Sewing and Design Certification Program is a performance based program that was developed by the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals (ASDP). The program is open to anyone with a sewing related business and is designed to provide the professional with the credentials that validate their skills and expertise. Each participant is given two years to complete the program. My goal is to complete the program by December of 2014.
The program consists of seven modules. They are;
In lieu of the cost of the program, I will posting my progress and giving feedback to the board. It has been over twenty years since I graduated from design school, so I feel that this will be an exciting process of reacquainting myself with many of the things I learned at that time.
The first module that I will be working on will be fabrics, or you may call it textiles. Thankfully, I still have many of my books from school that I should still be able to use at least as a starting point.
This is the book I used for my textiles class.
When my husband and I were hosting exchange students, I would tell each of them that if they studied and applied themselves the first time, they wouldn't have to do it a second time. Well, here I am going through something very similar for the second time, albeit quite a few years later! The difference here is that as the years have gone by, there are many things that I have forgotten simply because I just don't use them. This also gives me a chance to stretch myself a bit, explore, learn new things and add to the knowledge I already have. Sounds like a winning combination to me and what makes it fun is that you get to ride along with me!!
