So What (Exactly) does a Sewing Associate do?

Sewing Associates are responsible for identifying the fabric design, style, and associated stitching required for each product.  They sew products together using various machines.  Though Sewing Associates work mostly independently, they partner with various positions throughout the Cutting and Sewing department picking up and delivering fabric.  Sewing Associates work closely with BKI’s maintenance, supervisors and other team members to ensure we’re delivering high quality fabrics to delight our customers.
