Instructor Bio:
Linda Maki of Lanyos Handmade 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 and has sewn all her own clothes since.

Her next step was creating "Lanyos Handmade", her custom bag making and pattern design business. On the Lanyos Handmade YouTube channel, Linda loves sharing her sewing patterns, sewing tips, tutorials, and videos to help you with your sewing journey!

Linda uses her domestic sewing machines, a Janome MC8200QCP SE and a Janome HD3000, and her vintage sewing machines, a Singer 500 Rocketeer and a Singer 421G, to draft her bag patterns and sew up various bags, totes, wallets, etc., with an emphasis on using vegan, sustainable, up-cycled and repurposed materials.

Each year Lanyos Handmade donates 10% of pattern sale proceeds to the ALS Society of British Columbia. Thank you for your support!
