The lockdown situation and postponement of all our workshops has allowed me time to reflect and consider where we are, what we are doing and how we are going to move on from this.
First and foremost the reason Sew Me Something exists is to help people. I firmly believe that this is, or should be, the purpose behind every business. We strive to help as many people as we can learn to sew and make the clothes they really want to wear by creating easy to use dressmaking patterns, running workshops and providing quality fabrics and haberdashery.
It has become clear over the last few months to me and the rest of the team that we can reach far more people, and help far more people, by being more focussed online which is why I created the Sewing Studio. The tutorials, videos and in depth courses can be, and indeed are watched by people all over the world who would never be able to join us in person.
So now is the time to grow our team and invite someone to join us and help us to help more people learn and develop their sewing skills and techniques.
I am looking for an assistant. Someone to work with me to help create and produce new products including new patterns and courses.
This person will need to have a specific skills set. Ideally I am looking for someone who can pattern cut, have a good working knowledge of adobe software including Illustrator and InDesign and who knows about sewing.
They will need to be an excellent communicator and extremely organised as we have a lot to do!
The post would ideally be full time but we may consider a part time post for the right candidate. We are located on a farm just outside Stratford upon Avon, so the new team member will need to have their own transport and a clean driving licence.
When the world returns to semi-normal we will return to exhibiting at shows, so some travel away from home will be required as the shows are a team event. But it is a brilliant opportunity to meet our wonderful customers face to face and so gain better insight into who we serve.

I look forward to meeting you.
