Hi. I am Karen Pior and Sew Well Maide is where I wear my business hat. I also have other hats - Mother to five, Wife to one (!!!), Sister, Daughter, Friend. My hats are interchangable or, as frequently happens, worn precariously stacked on top of each other!!
I am passionate about all things fabric and textile. I love drafting my own patterns and then sewing beautiful, unique and individual garments from them. This has become my latest obsession passion! I love patchwork quilts both modern and antique. I love the excitement of designing quilts and accessories and stacks of fabric bolts give me a quiet little thrill!
I teach pattern drafting, sewing, quilting and crochet to all who are interested in dipping their creative fingers into all these pies! It is wonderful to see the excitement of accomplishment on the faces of my students.
Knitting is my nirvana. The click clack of the needles is both soothing and peaceful. It quietens a busy mind and lulls me into another world full of possibilities or nothing in particular!!! Crocheting is so quick and produces such wonderful textures that I can't resist it. When I hang out on Ravelry and Flickr I am known as Knitting Maide.
When time allows I love reading, veggie gardening and watching tv. And I try to never, ever miss an opportunity to yell and cheer as the football, soccer, cricket and ballet Mum.
