It's amazing the way you can become a designer or tailor through online learning. This is an investment that I’ll never regret all my life.

I would like to share my story with single mothers like me who think it’s impossible to make it with a child.
I started studying with eTelestia, while my son was only almost 5years old, today my son is almost 10years old. I’ve always worked during the day and during the evenings I did my studies while my son was in bed till I felt I was tired to do it. The more I thought it was impossible to do the cutting and drawing, the more it got interesting and the more I came up with different ideas to design. It is amazing the way you can become a designer or tailor through online learning.
Of course you need determination to achieve anything in life and you need to be willing to put effort at least everyday of your time. The best part about eTelestia courses, is that it is well explained and the examples are easy to follow and whenever you have questions, the teachers respond to you as quick as possible…..
Today I make clothes for different private clients and make extra cash for my living, and this is the investment that I’ll never regret all my life. Here attached are some of my samples that I have made and myself wearing one of the evening dress.

After many moons of searching for a pattern system that can be used properly and efficiently I found Telestia.

About twelve years ago I did a basic fashion diploma (very basic). I always had problems with the fit of commercial patterns and It did not make sense to me to buy a pattern that is "kind of" what I want, and that "kind of" fits and I would have to redo the whole pattern in any case. I also have a constant curiosity for the "why" and "how" factor. After many moons of searching for a pattern system that can be used properly and efficiently I found Telestia. I found that drafting a flat pattern with the old method and lots of calculations and so on a bit of a large task (specially with my kids that grow way too fast) It almost did not seem worth it.
I love fabric, and love to look at the way it behaves, and what it wants to do. I also love detail, even the details that one does not know goes into clothes, like with tailoring. When i finally make a fully hand tailored jacket, it has to be a perfect fit including its linings and stabilizers.
There are few people today that sees clothes design and construction and pattern design as a craft, a craft that seems to be dying out too. I also want to incorporate the new skills I'm learning into my quilting. I want to design jackets and coats that can be quilted - I guess more like a art and would like to send it into the shows. I find working with the patterns and playing with the lines and trying to visualize the the end result and the processes of making it one of the most satisfying activities I have ever come across. :)

Οι σπουδές μου στο πρόγραμμα e-telestia υπήρξαν άκρως εποικοδομητικές.

Οι σπουδές μου στο πρόγραμμα e-telestia υπήρξαν άκρως εποικοδομητικές. Ομολογώ πως είχα αρκετές επιφυλάξεις πριν πάρω την απόφαση να ξεκινήσω τις εν λόγω σπουδές, και βασικός παράγοντας στην απόφασή μου στάθηκαν τα demos που επιδεικνύουν ξεκάθαρα τον τρόπο που ακολουθείται στη διαδικασία μελέτης και εκμάθησης. Τα οφέλη δε που αποκόμισα είναι άμεσα, μιας και οι δυνατότητές μου να δημιουργώ ένα ένδυμα -από τον σχεδιασμό του έως την υλοποίησή του-, μου προσφέρουν ένα αίσθημα ικανοποίησης, δημιουργικότητας και άμεσης εφαρμογής των γνώσεων που έλαβα σε μία διαρκώς και ευρέως αναπτυσσόμενη αγορά.
Καταλυτικά υπήρξαν επίσης το κόστος και η διάρκεια σπουδών, αφού η μελέτη στον προσωπικό μου χώρο δεν επιβάρυνε τον οικονομικό προϋπολογισμό μου. Προτείνω ανεπιφύλαχτα τις σπουδές εξ αποστάσεως e-telestia στον κάθε ενδιαφερόμενο που θέλει να προσφέρει όχι μόνο ως επαγγελματίας, αλλά χρησιμοποιώντας τις γνώσεις του και ως εργαλείο για τον εαυτό του.

The format and content of your course is incredible.

The format and content of your course is incredible. I haven't made it too far yet, but from what I have seen so far it looks like you guys have done an amazing job at breaking it all down into understandable steps while at the same time allowing the student to see how it will all come together.

I will be enrolling in some more of your courses in the future. I am so excited that I found your website.

I took a course at a community college on pattern drafting and am finding your course to make much more sense to me and I feel confident that when I am finished I will actually have the skills to draft patterns. I have to admit I was a little hesitant about learning such a skill using a e-format, but you guys must have really put A LOT of thought and work into producing these courses. I am looking forward to going through the rest of the modules. And I will be enrolling in some more of your courses in the future. I am so excited that I found your website. Thank you.

I really enjoyed the course it gave me step-by-step instructions and a very sound methodology to not only learn to draw, but be able to do so with ever increasing accuracy.

I really enjoyed the course - Fashion Design - Technical drawing. I had no previous art experience and was never able to successfully draw the human body, yet alone clothing. The course gave me step-by-step instructions and a very sound methodology to not only learn to draw, but be able to do so with ever increasing accuracy. I also found my tutor to be helpful with questions not only about the course, but also helped me with a small IT problem I had with my computer.
