Check Out the Brilliant Work by Corps Members at the NYSC SAED Competition! Can You Guess Which Zone Came 1st?!


Oh I had a GREAT day today!!! I spent half of my day with some "pree-tty" talented Corps Members!  Yup!  I was invited to be a judge... (errr... let me take that again...).... I was invited to be the CHIEF JUDGE [yes thank you :-D] at this edition of the NYSC SAED Lagos Competition.  Actually to be honest, I have been a judge since the maiden edition but I must say, this particular one, which is like the 5th one, was the toughest one to judge!

Okay... before I even go very far, let me tell you quickly what SAED is about for those who have no clue what I'm on about...

Learn How to Sew From Scratch in our Next Fashion Course Course for Beginners! Start Date: 11 July, 2015!


Hello good people!!!!!!  I am sure you all had a GREAT Father's Day weekend!  I, for one, enjoyed the cool rainy weather and I am starting off this week on a pleasant note!

And here I am about to talk about the next Fashion Course coming up in July! Our Short Fashion Course for Beginners! 

The Beginners Course the first in the series of Courses we offer at Martwayne for complete starters who have no prior knowledge of sewing.  It is also one of my favourite courses because it gives us the perfect opportunity to start designers off on a solid foundation.  Generally people have a certain mindset about fashion, the industry and how it works but with this Course, we are able to clear these mindsets and expose people to even more ways of making money in the Industry... and a whole lot more... AND our students have never been disappointed!

So what does the Course teach?

Happy Father's Day!!!

Right:  Dear Daddy & I

Haha!  I just could not resist! :-D  But YES, in the Spirit of the Season, I have decided to wish all dads and "dads-to-be" a "Happy Father's Day"!  

I spent a better part of today reading all sorts of tributes from friends and Facebook contacts to their dads.  Wish many of them (including me) said as much to their dads often enough on a normal day and not just on the 3rd Sunday in June.  

BUT one particular Facebook post from a friend, Sola Kuti, to his dad was just so awesome I just had to post it here!  I tell you, there are a lot of lessons to be learnt from his post.  I wish I could highlight my favourite parts in the post but then again I'll probably end up highlighting the whole post!  But there is ONE particular part trumps the rest as my favourite part.  You read it yourself and see if you can guess which one it is...

Perfect Your Sewing Skills! Register for Martwayne's Bodices, Shirts & Dress-Making Course - Begins 8 July 2015


Yes yes!  And this is the VERY FIRST of our July 2015 Courses and the VERY FIRST time we are running this Course.  Yes!  This is the launch of this particular course and I think it will be great!  Why?  Because I have received quite a few enquiries from people who want to learn how to make shirts and dresses and from others who want to improve on and perfect their sewing skills.  So we decided to merge these 2 frequent requests we get into one great intensive course! :-D

Great!  So what is this Course about?!
