21-12-2020| PROJECT “CITY ATELIER” PARTICIPANT ENCOURAGED TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAM, CREATE A BRAND
Sewing can not only help you break away from your thoughts, help gain important skills, but also create new possibilities. Such sewing benefits was described by a participant of the “City Atelier” project, Kristina from Siauliai (name changed, known to the editorial board). Although before, as she said herself, she had nothing to do with sewing, but after the project she realized that she wanted to continue the business and build her own brand in the future.
Kristina says that she learned about the project from advertisement on the social media Facebook. To be truthful, the interviewee wanted to try sewing courses earlier and according to her, that’s when she noticed the advertisement about the project: “I thought, maybe I really should try, because if you won’t try – you won’t know if you like it”.
We invite you to read here about participants of our project “City Atelier”.
