Meet the Producer and podcast mentor

Maria Theoharous, Velosews keeps sewing and podcasting

Maria Theoharous – podcast mentor

You know you’re a keen sewist when no 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.

Maria spoke about Growing your podcast organically to the podcast community

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 but it’s the person behind each sewists that listeners come back to hear about again and again.
