K Sewing Machines Generously Supports Fashion – Enter’s Stitching Academy in Wales


K Sewing Machines (UK) Ltd has kindly agreed to support Fashion-Enter in Newtown, Wales with a generous grant for its new Stitching Academy. 

The first cohort of Stitching Academy learners are due to commence with the Level 1 course from the 17th January 2022. 

K Sewing Machines has been in the business for over 30-years, repairing, servicing and supplying sewing machines for factories, shops and home users.

Kyri Kyriakides from K Sewing Machines said:

“K Sewing won the quote to supply Fashion-Enter’s new factory in Newtown. We were so pleased that Fashion-Enter saved almost 70 skilled jobs from being lost when Laura Ashley closed. 

When I heard that Wales was now opening a Stitching Academy in Newtown with Newtown College we just had to support this great way forward to create a new generation of stitchers. 

Good luck to all the new learners who will be enrolling in the next two weeks.”

Fashion-Enter Wales is working in collaboration with NPTC Group of Colleges to provide this Level 1, 6-week accredited course. This course teaches learners how to operate an industrial sewing machine and a range of basic sewing techniques and has already seen success at Fashion-Enter London and Leicester. 

The Newtown Stitching Academy course is completely FREE for anyone over the age of 16 and provides a fantastic opportunity to progress onto employment or an apprenticeship.
