"Textiles and Fashion Technology" is one of many Family and Consumer Sciences classes offered at Northview High School.

In this class students learn about fashion and the textiles industry. They also learn a variety of sewing construction skills. One of the objectives of this semester course is for students to share their talents with others. Classes may choose a local, state, national or worldwide organizations, group or individual they would like to help. Students in the 6th period textiles class recently completed their service learning project.

The class selected a project to help senior citizens in our community. Jennifer Jeffers, Ramey Hayes and Alona Pierce researched the internet for walker caddy patterns. They selected a pattern and made a model before instructing their classmates.

A picture and note was put in each walker caddie before giving them to Cloverleaf Nursing Home. Justine Thompson, Alona Pierce and Jennifer Conard presented the walker caddies to Dottie Burgess, director of admissions at Cloverleaf Nursing Home. Joanna Connors teaches the Textiles and Fashion Technology classes at Northview.
