Our Professional Internship Program is designed for those seeking practical experience in the embroidery design field with a fast pace from point A to point B. Interns receive thorough embroidery design schooling directed by Master Designer Thomas L. Moore and are assigned a professional instructor during their stay. This program will take a qualified student from classroom instruction to a competency level where the intern is participating in our company's daily production. The longer the duration of the internship the more involved the intern will become with daily operations. This is real life experience within the exciting design firm of Strawberry Stitch Co.
There are only three prerequisites to applying to the Professional Internship Program.
The applicant must be seeking a career in the field of embroidery design.
The applicant must commit to a minimum of 4 continuous weeks (not including weekends) of active participation at our St. Louis facility.
The applicant must complete the PIP application process. (see below)
Each application will be thoroughly reviewed. Acceptance into the PIP will be at the sole discretion of Strawberry Stitch Co.
Strawberry Stitch Company will accept interns on a first come first serve basis. Applicants will be considered for scheduling once their application has been approved and payment has been received in full.
Professional Interns receive classroom and practical instruction on the process of preparing art and creating embroidery designs. Instruction is based on the very techniques which has made Strawberry Stitch Co. world renowned for their crisp designs with creative flare.
Interns may apply for appointments ranging from 4 to 12 continuous weeks. The longer the appointment the more beneficial the PIP to both the intern and to SSC. During the time of the PIP, the intern will be gaining real life experience in all aspects of the embroidery design process while developing a portfolio of designs which may be used in a job interview, if seeking employment will be a goal of the intern.
