COPT intermittently runs sewing classes at the different Centre’s. Basic sewing skills are taught. The students are taught how to operate and thread an electric sewing machine with all its different functions. The course also includes cutting out patterns, making button holes
and sewing on buttons. A number of useful hand sewing techniques are also mastered – e.g. making a pom-pom, appliqué stitching and finger knitting. The objective of the course is to create an interest in sewing as a possible means of earning an income.
