As much as I loooove to stitch every day for my therapy I simply don’t have the time to stitch samples for all my lovely store friends… and they are in the same position…and we know you all like to see them made up before you decide to purchase the pattern to make one yourself.
So, I am compiling a register of sample/model stitchers for my stores to refer to when they need a sample made.
If you love to stitch but cannot fit another thing in your home or any of your family and friends’ homes :) then this may be the perfect thing for you.
Job Description: Sample/Model Stitcher
Stitching, sewing skills and experience Time and knowledge of craft
What you need to do:

When they are in need of a sample stitcher they will contact the chosen applicant personally to discuss arrangements, payments, fabrics etc directly with the sample stitcher. Where possible once a contract is decided the pattern will be emailed from Pattern Press to the contracted employee for the sole purpose of making the finished product.
As part of your application you need to make up the block shown below which includes piecing, appliqué and stitchery.
Don’t worry if you are not a master of all skills, you designate what your strengths and preferences are on your application form.
What more could you ask? The perfect job, stitching and getting paid for it! You get to work on all your favourite patterns, and maybe have your name in lights also!
