“I just wanted to reiterate my thanks for your help and mentorship over the past few years.  I’m so excited about my new job in product innovation and development.  The team I’m joining wants someone who knows how to pattern and sew in order to test out new ideas and optimize them.  The construction, pattern making and CAD skills I gained at Portland Sewing were key to the position.  Thanks so much for your guidance and leadership!” — Serena
