Hello everybody! Welcome to my blog!
My name is Athina and I am a seamstress/teacher/blogger/author/editor… and the list goes on! I’ve been blogging since 2012 at Craftaholic.gr , my first blog which is written in greek and dedicated mostly to my business. I live in Greece, in a small town in the northern part of the country, with my fiance, Jim, and our tiny Maltese, Malou.
I am lucky enough to work for myself and am the owner of a small handmade business called Craftaholic, where I design and sell kid’s clothes and accesories. So, I spent all my day among cute fabrics, colors, sewing machines and thread! How cool is that?
I started sewing my own clothes a few years ago and plan to have a fully handmade wardrobe in the next 2 years. I’ve been inspired by the sewing community so much and decided to start a second blog, this one, written in English, so it’s easier to share my makes, my experience and my…mistakes with everyone around the world and not just people who live in Greece. I also have a YouTube channel in English 🙂
I have many other hobbies, such as quilting, crochet, cross stitching, embroidery, photography and baking and will be sharing some relevant posts as well, so this blog will be mostly about sewing but expect other crafty things, too!
