The Queen of Cups is looking for an apprentice. Could it be you?
The Queen of Cups (aka me) is delighted that there has been an increase in demand for custom fit bras in the last several months. With that demand, however, came increases in wait times for folks between their fittings, and a longer wait to receive their finished bra.
In order to provide better quality service, I’m looking for an apprentice to help casually with the cutting and assembly of custom fit bras and underwear.
The job is quite flexible, and you’ll be paid per piece completed, with the amount of work available dependent on demand.
You’ll receive free training in cutting, bra-making, underwear making, assembly, and quality control. I’ll also draft you a free, custom-fitted pattern for your own body, and you’ll have access to discounts for purchasing materials. You’ll also have the opportunity to provide input on the new projects being considered here at Queen of Cups, which may eventually grow into a full-time position. If you really get into it, you may also have the opportunity to become a partner in the company!
You can work from your home (if your home is smoke-free) or the Queen of Cups studio in St. Stephen, whichever works best for you! You will need to be in the Charlotte County area of New Brunswick. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to earn a little extra cash and gain some new skills! This may also be a great opportunity for a newcomer to New Brunswick who is looking to help improve both their income and their language skills.
You’ll need to have some experience sewing, and if you plan to work from home, your own sewing machine in good working order that is capable of straight stitch, zig zag, and three step zig zag. Queen of Cups will cover maintenance and repair fees for your machine.
