Hi Sew lover,

Okay so as part of our yearly contribution to the society, we TheQEffectz team will be storming the streets of Abuja from Saturday November 10th, 2018 to Sunday November 25th, 2018(Saturdays and Sundays only) for our 6-day Fashion Designing Workshop or as I like to call it, #Sewingonthestreets.

So if you are in Abuja and you are looking to learn how to sew as a beginner and make bags or to improve your sew business for absolutely free, this workshop is where you want to be.

The Workshop is actually a rip-off of our E-training program where we teach people how to sew but in a more elaborate scale. Our Online training is strictly via Syllabus. Each class is governed by its own syllabus which contains topics relevant to each stage of learning(see here to learn more). But because we will not be able to cover all the topics in 6 days, we will be looking at the basics and also be discussing on ways to improve our businesses.

At this workshop will be yours truly of course, and some other sew business owners who will be coming to sharing their real life experiences with us. I’m sure we will be able to learn one or two things from them.
