You’re the industrial sewing machine whisperer. You can coax the best out of any machine. If they were living creatures you’d have a herd of them following you, eager to please – you’re just that good.

Show them what you can do and you can snag a job as a Sewing Machine Operator, Sewing Joiner or Bartack Machine Operator in Seattle.
