Our flourishing fashion design program has been desperately in need of new sewing machines because many of them do not work properly. Tacony, Baby Lock and Jackman’s Fabrics came to our rescue and donated ten high quality Baby Lock machines along with a serger and a wide array of sewing notions. “I’m ecstatic,” expressed Alexis Cook, fashion design teacher. “This will make such a significant difference in the quality and efficiency of the students’ work. We are so grateful for this generous gift to our students and the Academy and feel extremely lucky.”
The gift was picked up from Jackman’s Fabrics on March 6th and will give the students plenty of time to finish up their projects before the Celebrating Success Fashion Show on Sunday, May 6th. Thank you Tacony, Baby Lock and Jackman’s Fabrics for this incredible gift!
