Provincial Sewing Competition Supported by Janome Canada

Competition was rampant at a recent BC Skilled Trades event at the Tradex Center in Abbotsford, BC.  Technical trade schools along with different companies supported and aided youth from high schools and post-secondary schools in a timed event where the students were given tasks to complete in the day.  Baking, cooking, decorating, hair styling, sewing and so much more were the areas of expertise the students participated in.  At the end of the competition, the participants were awarded with certificates for their skill levels accomplished in their selected field.

Janome Canada was there to support the students in the Fashion Technology section of the Trade Skills.  Students used the MC1600P sewing machine and the  Pro4DX serger.  From this Provincial competition the winning student will go to National and International competition levels.

The day started with the competitors drafting their patterns that met a certain set of  criteria.  They were to make a double breasted trench style jacket.  Some items needed to be exactly as dictated, but other items could be improvised by the competitors.  It was a very long and tense day for them but they completed the projects perfectly.

Many lower mainland schools sent bus loads of students to observe the competitions and to talk with the industry representatives and the trade school programs representatives.  It was a busy and eye-opening day for all who attended.

Janome was proud to sponsor this event by providing the sewing machines and sergers as well as staff to be on hand to assist with sewing machine questions.  It was great to see young people taking an interest in the sewing industry.

About ymenear

I have been sewing my entire life. I love sewing of all types but recently I have focused on quilting and machine embroidery. I am an educator for quilting and embroidery design software and I own and operate a machine embroidery club that teaches students how to use their machine effectively while creating their own unique projects. I love travel and getting to know people from different regions and seeing how they create projects with their machines.
