Erin Smith | Quilting Machine Operator
What is the most satisfying part of your job?
I love the fact that the products we are making here in the small country town of Naracoorte will be sold locally, nationally and globally.
What MiniJumbuk product could you not live without and why?
My Luxury + mattress topper, it’s comfortable and versatile as it can be reversed depending on the season. A cotton side for summer and a fleecy wool side for winter.
What kind of things do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I enjoy staying active outdoors including, sports, exercise and gardening.
You have worked in many different roles at MiniJumbuk, what is your main role now?
My current job in the factory is to bind the quilts and mattress toppers (sewing on the edge around the quilt or sewing on the fitted skirt to the mattress topper). Currently I am also supervising the new afternoon shift. During winter we see a seasonal increase in sales, so there is an additional shift running at the moment to ensure we have enough stock for all our customers.
