We’ve produced Australia and New Zealand’s first sewing community podcast to showcase sewing consumers in our community that help others. You’ll hear a range of interviews with our diverse sewing community network by Maria Theoharous, the producer of Sew Organised Style podcast and our Brisbane correspondent, Amy Tuite. We are grateful to collaborate with Sewcialists, Sewover50 and the Australian Sewing Guild and our sewing friends the Mending Mayhem team of Katrine and Suzie, Sue Stoney and Juliet Walsh. You’ll always hear how our guests share their strategies to work through challenges life throws them. Each guest bravely shares their strategies with our creative online community everyday. We hope you’ll support us through Patreon.
Meet the Producer and podcast mentor
Maria Theoharous, Velosews keeps sewing and podcasting
You know you’re a keen sewist when not matter where you are or what you’re doing, you keep looking at what people are wearing and think…I can make that, with ‘this’ pattern and ‘that’ fabric. It’s this mindset that has fuelled Maria during her life to keep sewing, blogging about sewing and sharing her sewing projects on Instagram across the sewing community. It only made sense to Maria to create another social media platform through this podcast, Australia’s first sewing podcast, to give a voice to her fellow sewists. Maria is your podcast contact point, production developer, general sound engineer wiz and sewing fanatic.
Partnering with online sewing communities that have diehard sewing fans who volunteer their time and expertise to give sewing consumers a voice is the driver behind why Maria has partnered with sewing communities that have the same core values. When you look at the partnerships that are regulars on Sew Organised Style podcast, you’ll realise it really is all about the fabric.
Sewing is a life skill that you can use to better balance your budget in lean times. Alternatively, you can go all out and make a smashing garment with your sewing skills.
