I just got an internship with the Ballet West costume shop for school credit. Ballet West is a local ballet company; I used to dance in their school.
Today was my first day so they got me acquainted with using an industrial sewing machine and showed me how they wanted hooks, eyes and snaps sewn on to their costumes.
I probably will not do much more than sew beads onto costumes and make bodice linings, however, I feel extremely grateful that I have this opportunity to learn and be a part of this process. I expect to get a lot out of this internship.
