CURRENT OPENINGS

We’re currently looking for event staff for our Northern California Patchwork Show: Modern Makers Festivals in San Francisco and Santa Rosa. Both positions are seasonal (1-3 shows a year in June and November/December in each city). You can work one show or multiple shows and we love to welcome staff back season after season.

If you’re interested email hello@dearhandmadelife.com with:

  1. A few sentences about why you’re a good fit for the position as well as any pertinent information we should know.  
  2. Which event(s) and date(s) you’re interested in working. You can work only one day or multiple days. 

If we’d like to chat with you about the position, we’ll reach out! 
Thanks!
