I have recently bought online some denim, pattern and zip etc to suit making myself some jeans. I had no idea of what quality to expect as my purchase was sight unseen. Not only is the denim a fantastic quality fabric, my order arrived within a couple of days. I was pleased with my purchase and doubly pleased that I supported a local supplier too. Well done Maaidesign.
The linen is beautiful. Service is great. Packaging is kept to a minimum and where it is used it’s environmentally responsible. I’ll be back.
I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered my patterns during the bushfire crisis in Victoria. Maaike emailed me to advise that there could be a delay in delivery due to the
fires. She responded to my inquiry very quickly and made me feel that my purchase was important to her.
When my parcel arrived I was very impressed with the little personal touches. I also received a lovely gift that I have been using. I will definitely order through Maaidedesigns again.
Love my lovely green denim and can't wait to make a pair of Dawn jeans. Maaike even included an extra 20cm bonus! Thanks Maaike!
Very happy with my purchase and the prompt service would highly recommend purchasing from this lovely business .
