Andrea reached out to me this past fall after finding Sew Santa Barbara. We emailed back and forth and now I can call her my friend.
Upon her arrival in January, Andrea stopped by to borrow my daughter’s sewing machine. My daughter was leaving to go back to college. Andrea was chatting with her and was looking at her portfolio of sewing projects.
