Simple Sew Blogger

Hi I'm Maria or Velosewer as I'm known online.

I sew.

I’ve always sewn.

I love to sew and there isn't a day when I don't sew or dream of my next sewing project.

I love to sew most clothing and the funny thing is, I don’t stress about sewing projects anymore.

It’s just fabric.

When people say "I can't sew on a button' I know they're missing out on a craft that I get so much joy


There are so many talented crafters online that I admire so it's always thrilling when others are

inspired by the clothes I sew. I love to encourage people with a creative passion to sew, no matter

where they live.

I'm school taught and then got my Home Ec teaching degree and I have always loved face-to- face

sewing classes when they’re available. Mum knitted and her mother crocheted traditional Cypriot

cotton thread bedspreads. That's my crafting heritage.

I've watched the Simple Sew collection grow and I can really see how these patterns suit work and

home especially in lovely Sydney, Australia.

The Capsule Wardrobe looks perfect for corporate and weekend wear.

I'm looking forward to showing you how easy Simple Sew patterns will be simple to suit real body

shapes without too much fuss.

No matter where I travel in the world, I know I can always meet up with a fellow sewing friend and

we'll always be able to speak the same language – fabrics, patterns and sewing.
