I am passing this along for a friend. Please DO NOT contact me with questions about the job, I don't know any answers (except why she's leaving the position). Once you read the rest of this email, you will know as many specifics about the job opening as I do. I don't consider myself qualified (I definitely don't know enough about pattern-drafting to teach it, not even to my assistant at work), but there are others on this list that may be more than qualified (and, since it's a 10-month, full-time position, it may be well worth the trouble...especially since it sounds like it's ten months A YEAR, and not just a single ten-month engagement, and could spin into a long-term position.)
