My name is Rosie Athanasiou. I am 47 years old, married and a mother of two. I am the Head of Marketing for a major greek bank, living in Athens. I am a cross-crafter: needlepoint, crochet, knitting, scrap-booking and in the last years, sewing and smocking.
I'm in the process of launching my website, velonistas.gr, addressing greek-speaking crafters of all disciplines. Velona in greek means needle, and the -istas has an activist message: With our needles as a weapon, we fight against anything cheap, massively produced, provocatively expensive.
