Andrea Mueller, Australian-German textile/graphic designer based in Berlin, Germany, and author of is passionate about quirky illustrations, fabric and sewing. Andrea’s up next on the blog with her perspective on the European sewing scene.

Andrea loves thinking outside the box, taking creative risks and bending the sewing rules. While as a mother of three she’s balancing the tightrope between motherhood and working from home, being a compulsive create-a-holic she’s thrilled to have her desk full of assignments. She has published a number of sewing patterns for girls and women, as well as having illustrated numerous designs for machine embroidery, sewing trim and other embellishments. Her children and trying to find the beauty in even the smallest things in life are her biggest source of inspiration, and her hunger for the next creative challenge keeps her perpetually in motion.
