POWER SEWING.
HILLINGER, YVONNE M.
ALTHOUGH THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY GUIDE IS TO PROVIDE A TEXT IN POWER SEWING FOR DEAF PUPILS, IT CAN ALSO BE USED FOR STUDENTS WITH READING OR LEARNING DIFFICULTIES. DEVELOPED BY AN INSTRUCTOR WITH FACULTY HELP, THE TEXT FOLLOWS A COURSE OF STUDY APPROVED BY THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND HAS BEEN TESTED IN VARIOUS CLASSROOMS. UNITS ARE -- (1) LET US LEARN ABOUT THE POWER SEWING MACHINE, (2) THE SINGLE-NEEDLE LOCKSTITCH MACHINE, (3) PRIMARY SEWING OPERATIONS, (4) SINGLE NEEDLE SEWING PROJECTS, (5) THE ZIG-ZAG MACHINE, (6) THE TWO-NEEDLE LOCKSTITCH MACHINE, (7) SPECIAL MACHINES, AND (8) MISCELLANEOUS. THE TEXT IS ILLUSTRATED WITH CARTOONS AND DRAWINGS, AND THE INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION ARE IN SIMPLE LANGUAGE. TERMS OR NEW WORDS ARE DEFINED AND WRITTEN PHONETICALLY FOR EASE IN PRONUNCIATION. MOST TESTS ARE OF PRACTICAL NATURE, ASKING THE STUDENTS TO PERFORM WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED. SAFETY IS EMPHASIZED, AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC SKILLS IS STRESSED FOR THIS COURSE WHICH IS RECOMMENDED FOR 10 - 15 PERIODS PER WEEK FOR 1 YEAR. THE TEACHER SHOULD BE CERTIFIED IN THE NEEDLE TRADES. THE STUDENTS ARE SELECTED FROM AMONG THOSE WHO ARE DEAF OR HAVE READING OR LANGUAGE DIFFICULTIES. A POWER SEWING SHOP WOULD BE REQUIRED.
