The new sewing school is being created to help women, including women in the UK, learn how to sew for themselves and others.
The new programme is part of the new British Sewing Society, which is set to launch next month.
It aims to teach women the basics of sewing through a series of classes and a series in which they are trained in a variety of sewing styles, including embroidery, cabling, floral design and colourwork.
It is also designed to help young women learn how the sewing world works and what it is like to create something out of nothing.
The organisation says the new sewing programme will help to empower women, who may not have a sewing experience before.
The sewing classes will be offered at schools and workplaces across the UK.
The first class, which will start next month, will teach sewing techniques for women with special needs such as learning how to use an embroideries needle and how to make a cabling dress.
The other classes will teach the basics in a range of styles, such as a cabled vest, cabled sweater or cabled skirt.
The programme is being developed by the BSS, which aims to offer a range with the aim of providing free, practical, affordable, and high quality sewing lessons for all.
The BSS will be offering its workshops to women aged between 16 and 50, as well as women of all backgrounds.
“I think the new BSS programme is fantastic, it’s fantastic to have these women coming into the programme who are looking for sewing lessons and it’s really exciting for us to see young women learning from women who have been through similar experiences and are now able to use their own skills to make something out, as opposed to having a teacher say ‘I’ll make this for you’ and not understanding how to do it,” says Angela Wilson, the director of the BSC.
“It’s great to see the women who come into the BSc programme with this aspiration coming into it with this interest, and they have the opportunity to learn from other women who are having similar experiences, so it’s great that this is something that is available to them.”
There are currently around 4,000 women enrolled in the BCS, but the organisation has set a target of 1 million by 2019.
The group has received some criticism over the past few years over the lack of female representation on its board, with women making up only one-third of the board members.
But it has made significant progress since then, with the BBS and the BSW now holding seats in the Board.
“We really hope that in 2020, we will have women of colour on the board of directors of the British Sewers Society,” Wilson says.
“The women who we work with are so important to the BSA.
I think that it’s a great achievement.”
The new BBS, set up to help the BSEA (British Sewing Association of the Southeast Asia) and the British Embroidery Society, will also hold its first class in the autumn of 2019.
The BSEB, the BIS, is also looking to recruit women to the programme, with a goal of having 100 women members by 2020.
“I know that it will be challenging for some of the young women to learn all of these new skills, but we hope that through the BseB, we can create opportunities for women of different backgrounds to be able to participate in these great things that we are all passionate about,” says Wilson.
BSA members are required to have a minimum of 10 years of sewing experience.
