Textiles Students Take Their Driving Test!

Students studying Year 9 Textiles had to prove they were up to the high standards required to use the sewing machines unassisted recently.

After a series of practice exercises which helped build up pupils� confidence, they had to demonstrate they were ready to be let loose by passing the Sewing Machine Driving Test.

The test requires pupils to navigate the sewing machine�s needle through an array of challenges which shows they can sew accurately and change direction when required.

Bethany was first to volunteer to take the test and with Mrs Byrne�s watchful eyes on her she successfully passed first time.

The class�s next project is to design and manufacture a wash bag inspired by Kath Kidston�s patterns.
