Linda Maki loves spending time with her family, and jogging, but her next love is SEWING! Linda’s Aunt was a trained seamstress in Hungary and her Mother always had a sewing machine on the dining room table. They taught her how to sew at a young age. Linda remembers sewing Barbie clothes in elementary school and outfits in middle school. Her proudest moment was designing and sewing her own wedding dress.
Linda started her sewing blog, “Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!”, to share her sewing projects with her readers. She is the creator and organizer of the #designindecember Sewing Challenge. Linda then decided there would be no more “store bought” in her wardrobe. Her next step was creating “”Lányos Handmade””, her custom bag making and pattern design business. On the Lányos Handmade YouTube channel, Linda loves sharing her sewing patterns, sewing tips, tutorials, and videos to help you with your sewing journey!
Linda uses her Janome HD3000, her vintage Singer 500 the Rocketeer and her Singer 421G to draft patterns and sew up various styles and sizes of bags, totes and wallets with an emphasis on using vegan, sustainable, up-cycled and/or repurposed materials.
Each year Lányos Handmade creates a fundraising project and donates 100% of the proceeds to the ALS Society of British Columbia. Thank you for your support!
