The Online Pattern Cutting Course – Telestia Creator for Perfect Fit & Style


Telestia was originally created as an online distance-learning programme for fashion and clothing skills developed by SITAM-AB. Founder Anastasia learned her business skills through studying a Business Studies Course at the City of London Polytechnic as well as taking training in a Pattern Cutting & Fashion Design in Italy, not the least all her life with her talented mother. 

In the ’80s SITAM-AB developed a wide range of bibliography based on the patented AB methods and tools for the teaching and practice of Pattern Making, Grading and Fashion Drawing. 

In the ’90s it developed a wide international network forging links and collaborations within and outside Europe. It developed and participated in many European co-funded projects, at least 6 with great success, and international awards for innovative approach.. 

With these projetcs the innovative learning materials were transferred into digital content using state-of-the-art technology and multimedia in a pedagogically effective way. The resulting Telestia materials were launched in 2004, pioneering in the development of eLearning training courses, Distance-Learning and blended learning materials for both classroom environments as well as for tutor-supported self learning.
