Jillian Tamaki

UPDATE: the position has been filled. THANK-YOU for those of you who replied. That was surprisingly painless.

I am looking for an Assistant for the next few months. A skilled assistant! Who knows her/his way around a sewing needle!

I need someone to help with an embroidery project, so embroidery skills and a portfolio is a must. There’ll also be errands to run in conjunction with the project (and other studio business). Other stuff:

-You will need to work in my house/studio, at least for the first while. I am located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We have a cat.

-The position is paid.

-Knowledge of crewel style stitching is a big bonus.

-Please be self-directed, assertive, reliable, and efficient. And not a crazyperson. I can reasonably assure you of my own sanity, and I love showering interns with donuts and coffee.

So! Think you got what it takes? Email me with a link to your portfolio at jill (AT) jilliantamaki (DOT) com. Click here for examples of the embroidery style that you will be helping me with.
