Andrea learned to sew when she was 10-years-old, but developed a true passion for it after graduating college and moving into her own apartment where she could spread out her mess of fabric scraps and pattern tissue. Andrea now lives in Philadelphia, PA, and sews the majority of her personal wardrobe, which she blogs about at Four Square Walls. She won second place in Season 1 of the online sewing competition Project Sewn, and has served as a judge in the 2013 Super Online Sewing Match and a pattern tester for several independent companies. After five years working in non-profit fund development, Andrea decided to leave the formal office environment and pursue a career as a seamstress. She currently (and very happily!) works in a local studio helping with commissioned sewing work, including alterations, custom garments and home decor.
