Find jobs from home sewing

Dreaming of quitting the day job and working from job? Learn how to find jobs from home sewing! In this age of austerity, people have stopped throwing out clothes and replacing them at the slightest sign of a rip or tear. However, there are a couple of generations with very few needle skills, creating a gap in the market and a potential money maker for anyone who wishes to work from home sewing and mending. You might even consider giving sewing lessons from home! Here are a few methods to help get your business up and running...

  • Look for vacancies. Local laundrettes often offer a mending or alteration service, and you could be the one who does the work. Check out your local media to see if vacancies are advertised. Your local radio station and local newspaper often have websites with job vacancy sections. It's relatively cheap (and in some cases, free) to advertise here, so there's a good chance that small businesses will post job openings. You might also consider the more traditional method of job hunting - calling in to local shops and companies with your CV and asking the manager to consider you for any current or future job opportunities.
  • Advertise your services. If you can't find a job, let a job come to you. Use local media websites to advertise your services, including prices and contact details. Sites like Gumtree are completely free to advertise on and tend to have high traffic. Also pin up notices on local noticeboards.
