Author(s): Poonam Kundu, Kanta Sabarwal and Manju Dahiya
The present study was conducted in Sirsa district on fifty rural women beneficiaries to whom ten days rigorous training was given on garment construction and design. Results highlighted the facts that 36.0 percent beneficiaries were educated upto primary level, 24.0 percent were graduated and belonged to agricultural community. The results highlighted the facts that 70.0 percent of the women get information about the latest trend of garments in the market from books, most of the women i.e. 60.0 percent sale their stitched products in neighbourhood and 68.0 percent sale them by keeping in mind the coast of product plus keeping their own margin. The results further showed that most of the women (60.0%) do the self-designing on garments and judge the prevailing trend of colour combination by seeing T.V. serials. The post training analysis of the training highlighted the fact that most of the ladies i.e.68.0 percent started their own work and earned rupees from 5000/- to 10,000/- per month. This shows that even today stitching is a perfect platform for rural women to stand on their own feet.
