Careers at NOMAR


Are you ready for something new? Do you dream of living the Alaskan adventure? Fantasize about living in a seaside hamlet? Well, maybe NOMAR can help! Join us in beautiful Homer, Alaska set on the Kachemak Bay. 

NOMAR is a small sewing company located in downtown Homer, Alaska. We make almost everything you see on the website plus a whole lot more. Our company always has a need for talented individuals with sewing and design skills. Many talented sew shop employees have been displaced in the lower 48. Shops have simply closed and the work has been shipped off-shore. NOMAR manufactures exceptionally high quality, Alaska specific designs in clothing and industrial applications. We invite well trained and talented sewing machine operators to be on our team! If you ever make it to Homer, love it and don't want to leave, talk to us about employment.

FACTS: You won't get wealthy in Homer but you will have a rich and fulfilling lifestyle in this small maritime community. We are on the road system, so you can drive here from the lower 48. We are the farthest west you can drive in the USA. Our schools are excellent and crime is almost non-existent. Winter temperatures average about 20° and the average summer temps stay around 65°. And yes, we have some of the best fishing and hunting in the world.
