Careers at Sew Over It

Sunday Shop Assistant

We need a shop assistant to work in our Islington shop on Sundays. This would involve prepping for classes, welcoming the customers for classes, serving customers in the shop, keeping the shop tidy and processing online orders. Although the regular weekly hours are on a Sunday, there is likely to be more work in during the week to help during busy periods and to cover staff holidays so we are looking for someone who is flexible.

Skills and experience required:

Great customer service skills
Retail experience
Responsible and reliable
A can-do attitude
Eye for detail
An interest in sewing and fabric

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

Freelance Pattern Cutter

We are looking for an experienced pattern cutter who is proficient in both woven & knit garments. The patterns are for home dressmakers, not for RTW, so an understanding of dressmaking is essential.

Skills and experience required:

Experience of pattern cutting in both woven & knit garments
Knowledge of home dressmaking
Excellent sewing skills (to make up samples)

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