Windows by Melissa, LLC is looking to add on to our team of seamstresses. Windows by Melissa is known for making custom roman shades, draperies, bench cushions, etc. We are entirely online, mainly Etsy.
Background of company: Melissa started this business back in 2010. She was raising young children and wanted to supply some sort of income to help the family. As she started her Etsy shop it quickly grew and she needed more help. She reached out to stay at home mothers to see if anyone wanted to help her sew. This quickly expanded. Now we have a team of 7 and administration help. The business seems to keep growing and we are ready to add another person to our team.
Seamstresses: We have 7 seamstresses located all around the U.S. Seamstresses are independent contractors and work entirely from their home. All supplies will be given to the seamstress (except for sewing machine). Seamstresses need a good work space, a reliable sewing machine, reliable internet/lap top for communication, and printer to print shipping labels. A seamstress will be given an order with an offer and deadline/ship by date for a project. The seamstress can work at their pace as long as the order goes out on or before the ship date. The seamstress can accept as much or as little work as they would like to fit their life style. There are no quotas that need to be met with this position. We average roughly 80-90 orders per month. 50-60 on a slow month.
Training: We will supply the seamstress with training videos and practice materials to create practice roman shades. These practice roman shades will determine if the seamstress is fit for the the position.
Experience will be necessary for this position. Please email with resume and a cover letter explaining your previous sewing experience.
