MY FIRST DAY WORKING THE CUTTING COUNTER AT JO-ANN FABRIC





I worked four hours today, cutting fabric and batting for customers.  The first part of the day was orientation, getting my uniform, etc., and then learning how to do my new job.  At first, I was pretty overwhelmed and asked a lot of questions, but I started getting into the swing of things pretty quickly.

I'm looking forward to working again on Friday.

  1. I love Jo-Ann fabrics. Around here we have Hancock and Jo-Ann but I refuse to go back to Hancock. They have poor selection and always seem to be understaffed.
    And the fact that Jo-Ann hired you has elevated my opinion of them even higher.
    Could be dangerous to work in a fabric store. I love buying fabric!

    1. I just tell myself that I work in a museum - I get to look at the pretty things all day, but I don't get to take them home with me. :0)

  5. Hi Ms.Rebecca,

  6. I still work at Jo-Ann as a teacher of knitting, crocheting and quilting. The uniform is black, navy or tan slacks, skirt or walking shorts and a green or white shirt that has a collar. Plus, you get an an apron and name tag. Good luck!
