    The beginner's sewing course will be taught by Aisha and Jerry, two The Hague Based professionals, who will alternate the classes. 

    Jerry: “I'm a late starter when it comes to sewing, but I was always curious.

    From an early age I wanted to be a fashion designer, everything in my life turned out a little differently. However the passion for fashion (and how it’s made) never faded.
    My sewing journey really started in 2019, when I wanted to make something that I couldn't find in the store. And when I finally found it, the quality was so poor that I decided at that moment that I‘d better make it myself. So naturally, I immediately ordered a sewing machine.
    Of course I was completely inexperienced and knew nothing about presser feet or fabrics. I had absolutely no clue what to do with my newly bought sewing machine!

    Still, I took that first step and have never looked back. It is relaxing for me, and every moment of spare time I like to spend with my machine.
    I really enjoyed it so much, that I decided to enroll in fashion school, to continue learning new techniques (by hand and machine) that will keep me on my toes!“

    Aisha: “I’ve studied on the Modevakschool, already years ago, but ended up in the corporate world after school. However, the passion for sewing was never lost and she realized she wanted to turn her hobby into her profession. 

    Soon after she started.
