    Hi Ms.Heidi!! Thank you for this video! Let’s say that I put my resume on LinkedIn and someone wants to hire temporarily for a project. Do they provide me with what they want me with information on where they want to get the fabric and where to get it sewn in the tech pack or do they want me to do it? I live in Alabama and there aren’t a lot of contractors around for me to go to.
