Sew Creative is hiring!
We are interested in hearing from experienced dressmakers and seamstresses. The majority of the Sew Creative classes are ‘free sew’ where each individual is able to choose what they would like to make, instead of everyone making the same item. This therefore requires the right candidate to be able to think on their feet and give advice and assistance on a wide variety of projects in one lesson!
The vast majority of our customers opt to learn how to make clothing, however an understanding of how to make a variety of home furnishings (cushions, curtains, etc.) and basic quilting would also be beneficial. You will need experience in working with, and altering, patterns, fitting and altering garments, and a knowledge of various sewing methods. A part of the role will involve selling fabric, patterns and haberdashery, therefore an understanding of a wide variety of fabrics, patterns and trimmings is a must.
A Sew Creative class is not all about the sewing! Our classes are like mini communities, with regulars booking up their space weeks in advance. The ideal candidate will be able to create a happy and welcoming environment for everyone who walks through the door, ensuring that everyone leaves feeling like they have achieved something.
No formal teaching qualification is required, however would be beneficial. Additionally, there is also no requirement for the right candidate to have a formal textile or fashion qualification, as many people learn from family members, or in places like Sew Creative!
