Looking for a person to help me move my sewing/painting studio from an upstairs bedroom to the basement. I have several closets full of fabric that need organizing and put away as well as a great deal of cleaning and re-organizing in the basement before the move can be accomplished. We haven't lived in New Jersey very long and most of the organizing in the basement is moving boxes and holiday decorations etc. I won't be finishing the basement per se, but I will need to paint walls and floors and setup the studio furniture/equipment. It's all too much for one person and I'll be working alongside whomever takes the job. I'm open to design ideas and would welcome help designing and setting up my space. I'd like to start clearing the basement and moving the studio this week if possible. The ideal person will be able to lift 35 lbs., pay close attention to detail, be hard working and reliable, and have a sense of organization. This is an excellent, short term, summer job with FLEXIBLE HOURS. Please send me an email outlining why you are right for this job with contact info for two references.
Once the studio is up and running, I will be hiring a part time studio assistant to help with the day to day running of the studio; to learn to load the long arm quilting machine; and to help me build my business. Ideally this would be the same person who helped me setup the studio, however if you only want the short term setup gig (week long) please contact me ASAP.
The person who works for me needs to be detail oriented, have a strong work ethic, the ability to lift 35 lbs., and ideally a strong design/aesthetic sensibility. Sewing skills are a bonus, but I'm willing to teach the right person. Strong writing skills are helpful, but a sense of humor and a positive attitude are a must.
Hours are flexible, pay will be $15-20 per hour depending on experience. 1-3 days/per week to start, more as business grows.
Please send a letter of interest, work experience, and why you think you are the right person for this job to the email provided. References are required and will be checked.
