Errata and therefore, pattern checker. And a hello to Alex.
There are a few pattern errors that have been bought to my attention recently, we are busy compiling a list of them and will be updating the website soon. Apologies that they slipped through our proof reading net, which brings me onto my next point. We’re looking to hire a freelance pattern checker. It needs to be someone with good sewing experience who can look at a pattern, read it through and spot what is missing, incorrect, needs clarifying. We have a technical editor on board who takes care of all the sizing of the garments so it would just be the pattern instructions that would need to be checked and formatted.
This role is home based and freelance and would suit someone who can spare a couple of hours a week to read through Word documents, highlight changes and liase directly with designers through email. All applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of January. Successful applicants will be contacted the first week in February, if your application is not successful we may not be able to reply to you, depending on the number of applicants. You can also call 01279 874630 for more information.
Finally, a big hello to Alex who joined us last week as Sew Hip production editor. She is based in the Hertfordshire office and can be contacted on the above number. Her role in the magazine is to pull everything together, chase copy, write and edit and generally make sure that the magazine comes together on deadline. Her email is email@example.com if you want to drop her an email and say hello.
