ABOUT

Hi there, my name is Suz.  I live in country Victoria, Australia on a six acre property with my husband and three daughters.  Isabella (9 years), Juliette (8 years) and Emily (6 years) are my main sewing inspiration! I started this blog way back in 2011 for fun and to share my sewing. 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 started making and selling digital sewing patterns in 2013 - first under the label sewpony vintage, but now as simply, sewpony.  I LOVE designing patterns and it gives me such satisfaction to see my girls wear my designs and to be able to sell my patterns to people all over the world. When I am not thinking about sewing, I am teaching primary school children and enjoying life with my extended family and friends in a beautiful part of the world.

I hope you find some inspiration here!
