BenchLab Talented Instructor: Fiqah of Fica Collection. You’ll be learning from a self-taught entrepreneur who dived into the arts and crafts when she was still a little girl. A few years down the road after playing around with her mother’s sewing kit, she began turning her passion in tailoring into her profession. She attended Pusat Pembangunan Belia in 2013 studying tailoring methods and has been making things like clothes, bedsheets, tablecloth, bags, accessories like bracelets and scrunchies ever since! She is now focusing more on making pet products like pet cushion beds, toys, hammock and many more. Fiqah hopes to share her knowledge on making pet cushion beds so people can use it either for personal use to keep their pets warm during cold nights, a gift for a friend’s pets or even sell them to the public!
