Hi there, my name is Suz.  I started sewpony in 2011 as a way to record and catalogue photographs of things that I make.  My husband, Stefan came up with the name 'sewpony' as a take on the term 'show pony', since I am essentially 'showing off' the things that I sew. 

My beautiful Mum taught be to sew when I was about twelve years old.  Although, I didn't get really enthusiastic about sewing until I was pregnant with my first daughter, Isabella.  A quilt was started at only 9 weeks through my pregnancy!  I think it's safe to say that I am now officially addicted to sewing.

I also make and sell vintage inspired digital PDF patterns. You can find them in my etsy shop sewponyvintage.

In 2014, my family and I moved from Melbourne to my home town in country Victoria, Australia to a property on six acres. I live here with my husband and three little daughters - Isabella (8 years), Juliette (6 years) and Emily (5 years).  I have also recently got back into my (relatively) new career of Primary School Teaching, which I love. You can find me on facebook and instagram.

Thanks for visiting sewpony!
