Position: Production Sewist
Start Date: ASAP
Compensation: $16/hr; paid out based on 4 pieces per hour at $4 a piece

Hey Mavens! is seeking experienced, Nashville-based sewists for help creating bralettes, undies, and bodysuits. We are a body-neutral brand that celebrates all shapes by creating comfortable and fun base layer garments in velvet and playful prints in sizes XXS through 6XL.

This is a 1099 contracted position to be performed in your own home or studio, on your own schedule, with agreed-upon turn around times and deadlines.

Requirements:

  • access to serger, zig zag and straight stitch sewing machines

  • ability to meet deadlines and communicate effectively

  • ability to drop off and pick up at our east nashville shop or nations warehouse location

  • positive and self-starting attitude

We provide ready-cut and organized bras and undies, with size labels, brand tags, and clasps, as well as the appropriate threads for all machines used. All you are responsible for is your machines, needles, and nippers/scissors.

Pay is $16 an hour for sewing, but we pay by the piece. This works out to be about $4 a piece, as it takes about 15 minutes to complete each item. You may sew them one by one or production style, and pay-out is based on the number of finished pieces. This way you don't get punished if you're a fast sewer!

We provide training, a google folder with video and written instructions on how to create each piece, and we track inventory through a google spreadsheet. We pay via PayPal on your drop off date.

The most important qualities to Hey Mavens! are proficiency at sewing, trustworthiness, and the ability to meet deadlines.

To apply: email Annika at annika@heymavens.com with your PDF resume, and a short blurb about yourself and why you think you’d be a good fit. We will be scheduling follow up video calls within the next week. You may be asked to complete a sample as part of the interview process, and you will be compensated for that work regardless of if we decide to move forward together or not.
