Hello there! I am Athina, a seamstress from Greece. Sewing is my passion and teaching other people how to sew has been my mission for the last couple of years.
Is there a sewing machine gathering dust somewhere in your house because you are afraid to use it?
Do you want to learn how to sew your own clothes but don’t know where to start?
Do you find sewing terminology hard and have no one to explain it to you?
Are you looking for stylish easy to make patterns that you can enjoy wearing and that are available from sizes 4-28?
I am here to teach you how to sew in a fun, uncomplicated way and to show you how to use sewing patterns to create the wardrobe of your dreams. No stress! No overwhelm! Just fun!
As a self-taught seamstress myself, I know all the struggles you are facing. I started sewing on my grandma’s sewing machine about 6 years ago as a way to fight stress and found a creative hobby, but it quickly turned into my biggest passion. Within a few months, I launched my own small business, Craftaholic, where I design and sell kids clothes and accessories since 2013. In 2018 I launched a sewing pattern company, “Athina Kakou Patterns”, designing pattern’s for women of all ages, shapes and sizes.
