White Rock, BC, Canada.  CADTERNS Teaching the Teachers



Kwantlen University College of Richmond BC is accepting registration for an intensive 1-week course for Fashion Arts teachers to be held in mid-August 2005. FNDN 4102 is part of a certificate in collaboration with UBC, designated for teachers of secondary and post-secondary textile studies who want to develop further expertise for the teaching of textile studies.

The course will feature the CADTERNS software program and revolutionary Fit-FIRST system of personal patternmaking, providing new options for teaching flat pattern design. Vera Buxton who is teaching the course, has successfully used CADTERNS to introduce students who are new to sewing, about how to sew without the need to always purchase a pattern.

Participating teachers will use CADTERNS to instantly calculate their own personal Ready-to-Styleä slopers (collection of basic fitting blocks). In addition, participants will learn how to combine these basic slopers from CADTERNS with the entry-level CAD program, AutoSketch. Participants will learn to style unique personal sewing patterns for their own fashion interests, experiencing first-hand how computer-assisted patternmaking might be applied in their own classrooms.

Not only will participating teachers have a creative way to wind up summer 2005 holidays, they will be able to add 3 credits to their teaching credentials at the same time. Does the end of the summer and start of a new school year get any better than that?

NB: Number of spaces is limited to 16 and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Registration deadline is Friday June 17. For further detail, see

CADTERNS is a small electronic cottage industry operating from several satellite home offices in the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. CADTERNS software was developed for the purpose of enabling anyone to create basic, ready-to-style, personal slopers (combinations of patternmaking blocks). These slopers can be used like personal patternmaking templates to alter other patterns to fit or to style new, pre-fitted ones. CADTERNS personal patternmaking program is useful in many educational and entrepreneurial (home based business) applications.
