From Paralegal to Quilting Entrepreneur

Andrea, the founder of Sew Happy Quilting, found herself at a crossroads. Dissatisfied with her career as a paralegal, she asked herself a simple yet profound question: “What would I do if I could do anything?” The answer lay in her lifelong passion for quilting, a therapeutic and rewarding craft that allowed her to express her creativity and love for vibrant colors and patterns.

Determined to turn her dream into reality, Andrea embarked on a journey to transform her passion into a thriving business. However, the path was not without its challenges. As a mother of three young children, Andrea had to find a way to balance her family responsibilities with her entrepreneurial aspirations.

Adapting and Growing: The Evolution of Sew Happy Quilting

In the early days, Andrea’s living room doubled as her makeshift studio. She would steal moments to quilt while her children played nearby, gradually building her skills and confidence. As her children grew, so did her business. Andrea expanded her online presence, opening an Etsy shop dedicated to her unique quilting creations.

Despite the challenges of juggling motherhood and entrepreneurship, Andrea remained focused on her goal. She adapted her strategies as her children grew older, volunteering at their schools and making the most of her free time between 8am and 2pm. The flexibility of running her own business allowed her to be present for her family while still pursuing her passion.
