About Crafty Girl Maria
Crafty Girl Maria was founded by Maria Hancock in 2017 in Surrey, England. What started as a bit of a hobby in her spare time on eBay, developed into selling her own sewing patterns on Etsy and then selling gorgeous fabrics and other sewing and craft goods.Maria is also available locally for one-to-one and group sewing tuition.
Maria has been creative since she was a small child growing up in the 70s, with a mum who was a keen cook and sewer, so she was taught to craft, sew and bake from a very young age. She made her very first sale of a handmade soft toy at around the age of 10 at a local church fair. She's continued sewing her own curtains, blinds and cushions and more recently started making her own clothes.
