Yesterday I started work at an upholstery factory. I never even had an interview, they just called me to come in, and when I did, they started training me.
I had to make two practice pillow covers from heavy duck material. The second one had a cording around it. They both had zippers. They liked my work, so they started me on the real thing.
I got three pillow covers done before time to leave. The velour was the hardest to work with as it had a rubberized backing.
I think I will enjoy working there because of the nice machines--sewing, serging, quilting.
I love to learn new things.
It was hot, though. They don't have air conditioning. Just a lot of fans.
Today I made 5 pillow covers. Practice makes perfect.
