|Does anyone hire any help for their sewing business ? I'm looking to expand my business and need to hire some outside help. Anyone know of any sewing related classified places where I can post for help ?||

I encourage you to advertise locally. That way you have some control of the quality of the work. While I was sewing professionally I got a lot of calls from people who wanted to do contract work. I think you could probably advertise in local papers. If you live in a small area that has a local paper I think it would be better (and cheaper) than advertising in large metropolitan papers. You need to make sure that you have paper work drawn up between you, otherwise you may find yourself paying for unemployement and social security. If you have a contract you can do it so they are responsible for paying their own taxes, ss and unemployement. You also need to check on addition zoning/licensing/insurance requirements/regulations as this kicks up your work a notch.
