Hi there! I’m Maria, founder of Maria Rose Sews. I started my business to create beautiful, quality clothes and fabric goods for people to use in their everyday lives. In addition to starting my own business, I also work freelance so I’m always sewing something new and unique.
My sewing career started in college when I got a job in the costume shop of a dance theatre. After my first year, I switched majors from Architecture to Costume Design and worked in several theatres during college.
After graduating, I moved to the Bay Area with my husband and started working as a bridal alterations seamstress. After a year of alterations I knew I wanted to do more creative work, so I quit my job and started working at Fabric Outlet (Cali Fabric’s brick & mortar store in SF), while pursuing my freelance career.
In November of 2016, we moved to Portland and soon after I founded Maria Rose Sews. I can’t wait to share my sewing projects with you, as well as my foray into becoming a business owner.
