Want to cut your production time in half? Then ditch the paper and pencils and go digital!

This picture made me laugh when I saw it!  But yes!  We tailors now use laptops!  😀 I spoke about it on our radio show on 98.9 Kiss FM on Friday and you should watch it!  I tell you this is the way to go!

Ok… so I realized that whilst promoting this Course (and I must confess, I don’t think I really promoted it that much), I never really spoke about the benefits of the Course.  So you are probably thinking… “why go digital when I can use my pencil and paper” right?

Ok… check out this scenario…

Example of a Digital Pattern and the Sewn Outfit

You make clothes for people and draft your patterns manually.  Imagine if you could do this on the system just once!  And next time someone else comes, you input their measurements and voila, the pattern comes out in their own size!

OR you run an in-house clothing production unit creating clothes in standard sizes.  Oh… imagine the torture of having to grade each pattern one by one when with just a few strokes, your work is done!

I can safely speak for myself when I say I have to be physically and psychologically prepared for pattern-making!  Having to search for paper, pencils, erasers and all what not or WORSE discover that I am out of paper is like the worst thing!  But now… you can simply work on your dining table in front of the TV.  Life does not have to be so tough anymore! 😀

And this is just a SNAP SHOT of what this course has to offer!  You can work across international boundaries as well.  I have 2 people who have reached out to me asking me to create patterns for them.  So this is you starting a new career as a pattern maker! 

Okies so ditch the pencils and paper and switch to digital patterns on your laptop!  And save yourself the headache and backache as well!  Register for our Pattern-Making & Grading with Computer-Aided Design.

SO details about the Course?!  I’ll give it to you just now!

The course begins on Tuesday 4th of July 2017 and it will hold on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am – 2pm.  It is in 2 parts:

Part 1 is the Pattern Making bit.  It lasts for 5 weeks and costs N80,000 including your training materials except, of course, your laptop.  That you need to come with.

Part 2 is the Pattern Grading bit which is where you increase or reduce in size.  This will last an extra 3 weeks and costs N40,000 if you registered for Part 1.  

If you want just this part of the Course, it will cost N50,000 and it includes your training materials.  But to be honest, this limits you to just the manual grading portion because we can’t start teaching you about the digital workspace in Part 1. Please bring your laptop.  Oh… if you use a Mac please contact us before you register.

And that’s it really!  Easy peasy!  Trust me you will love this Course!

Registration is easy!  Simply pay the fees by bank or online transfer into the Martwayne Limited 023 710 3843 account in any GTBank OR

And YET another brand spanking new course from us at Martwayne!  Yes – this Course I tell you is off the hook!  Are you thinking of starting your own ready to wear line in standard sizes?!  Well it’s time to ditch the manual techniques and go digital with our brand new Course – the Pattern Drafting & Grading with Computer-Aided Design!  Just think about it!  Cut your production process in half by digitizing your patterns and save yourself the time and energy by cutting out the manual grading and going digital with a computer software!  You can easily create several sizes just from one pattern just from a few strokes on your laptop!  I tell you this is the new ISH and I am so excited about it!   

Let me tell you all about the Course…

Ok so you know the best ideas stem from some form of frustration right?!  Well I can tell you, we got to that stage with the production center.  After creating the pattern, Round 2 of the stress comes from  grading the patterns, i.e. increasing or reducing the sizes manually.  And we thought, if we are facing this problem, other designers must be facing it as well!  And I tell you, creating patterns on a laptop is so much fun!  Cuts out all the standing and paper and all.  And if you make a mistake, simply delete that line!  

But of course, we cannot totally rule out manual pattern making.  Some of us are still old school BUT the best part is, you can digitize your manual patterns and do whatever you want to do to them. And this course teaches you just that!  Headache solved from all angles!

Or just imagine creating an awesome design and someone wants one.  Why start from scratch?!  Simply digitize the pattern and customize it to that person’s 

So How will It Run?!

The Course is in 2 parts:

Part 1: Pattern Drafting; and
Part 2: Pattern Grading

The Part 2 includes both manual grading and digital grading!  We split it so participants who want to learn just the manual grading bit can also join us.

What Will You Learn?  

Well for one I can tell you it will be a packed course.  You will learn how to use the software environment, how to draft your blocks using the software, how to digitize patterns, dart manipulation, panels, gathers, pleats, etc and of course grading!  And that really is me just giving you a snapshot.  Trust me, anyone who registers for our courses can confirm they are packed with information overload!  But please note that this Course is only open to those with a prior knowledge of pattern making and it is not a sewing class.

When Will it Begin?

Tuesday 13 June 2017 and will run on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10am – 2pm.

Weekend students, not to worry, we promise to come up with a weekend option right after this one so please be patient with us.

Duration & Course Fees:

Pattern Drafting: 5 weeks; N80, 000 
Pattern Grading: additional 3 weeks; additional N40, 000

If you want to learn the manual grading only, this will be N50, 000 and will last 2 weeks.

If you want to register for Part 2 only (both the manual and digital grading), that will be N60,000.

All fees include the training materials but you need your laptop!

Benefits of the Course:

Well for one, everyone needs a pattern maker!  A perfect pattern begets a perfect outfit! So really with this Course, you can easily create a 2nd income for yourself.

And the best part is, going digital opens you up to a global market since customers can outsource their patterns to you to either create from scratch or grade them.  You can simply mail the finished result to them without having to bother about mailing pieces of pattern paper and worrying about courier costs.  

I can tell you that so far, with the factory we set up, communicating and getting the required technical drawings has been a breeze.  All the work is done electronically so makes life easier for everyone.

So trust me when I say, going digital is really the way to go!

How to Register:

As always, registration is as easy as pie!  Simply pay the fees in cash or via online transfer into our GTBank account, Martwayne Limited at any Zenith Bank branch.

Classes will take place at our Training Center in Surulere, off Alhaji Masha Roundabout.
