Careers at Sew Over It

We are looking for an experienced teacher to join our team. You will be teaching beginner to intermediate dressmaking classes of adult groups from 6-10. You will need to have experience of teaching groups as well as excellent knowledge of home dressmaking, and fitting different body shapes. The classes run on evenings and weekends and in our Islington shop.

Skills & experience:
– teaching experience (groups)
– excellent dressmaking skills
– excellent fitting skills

– familiar with domestic sewing machines and overlockers
– great people skills
– patient teacher
– warm and friendly manner

3 – 12 hours per week, £25+ per hour

Please email [email protected] with an up to date CV and short covering letter.


Work experience

We are always looking for new people. Work experience at Sew Over It is typically an admin based role and can involve everything from helping out in the shop, assisting Mollie with our online shop orders or working with Lisa to create beautiful visual merchandising displays – and sometimes a little bit of sewing!  We need interns to work in our Islington shop, typically a four day week (Tuesday-Friday). So that the placement is worthwhile for both parties, we don’t take anyone on for less than a month. Our work experience placements are unpaid but we are happy to cover the cost of travel within London.

As a thank you, you will be able to take the classes (if there is space) in the evenings or weekends for the duration you are with us.

If you are interested, please email [email protected] with a CV and your availability.
