In October 2006 a nine-month tailoring class was started at the Heritage Center at Camp Johnson Road.  What a delight to have eight eager learners. Participants are between the ages of 8 and 20 years.  With four sewing machines each one has an opportunity to practice what is taught. 

Each sewing machine costs approximately $150 in Liberia.   We still need more machines so that each one will be able to 'man' a machine at the same time.  The class will be limited to 10 persons and is held three days per week each for three hour session.

The curriculum is as follows:

Month 1    basics in sewing

Month 2   Skirt making

Month 3   Blouses

Month 4   Dresses

Month 5   Skirts

Month 6   Trousers

Month 7   Complex blouses and skirts

Month 8   Complex dresses

Month 9   Complex trousers
