Canada offers a wonderful opportunity for being able to enter into specialty sewing spaces. It all begins first with getting the proper education and training for this industry first. Then it helps to take on some general sewing positions before deciding which one to specialize in if that is what you wish to do.
Examples of Sewing Spaces
- Glove makers
Each one of these individual components of the sewing industry can set up a person to build a full-time career in these specialties. To make the decision, you should first find out what the current job market is like for each of those that you are interested in.
You may even want to gain enough experience so you could fill positions in two or three of them. That way, if one segment of the industry weakens, you have the others to fall back on. Sewing can go in trends so it is important to be trained to be able to fill positions that are trending. Trends come and go and repeat themselves. So a particular segment of the industry may slow down for a while but will then revive itself so your time and experience will not be wasted.
