About

Welcome to our 10th Anniversary!

Welcome to the continuation of "A Stitch n' Time, LLC. "A Stitch n' Time", a licensed, taxable business venue, officially opened it's doors on November 5, 2013. My name is Andrea Hoover, the Sole owner, and happy worker bee of this company. 


This will be an amazing year of growth and changes. I just finished my Master Alterations Specialties Certification from the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals (ASDP) And, earlier on, In 2017,  I acquired my Dressmaker I Certification through ASDP. I am also, currently, the President of the Baltimore ASDP Chapter and trying to get enough guts and finances up to open up a Brick & Mortar store front.

SERVICES

At the home of "A Stitch n' Time", I am focused on providing quality sewing, alteration, tailoring, and instructional services in a timely manner. I will do everything I can to meet your expectations, including meeting with you individually for a pre-trial interview (a peace-of-mind offering). If you had not realized it, while you were meeting with me, sometimes I am the one actually interviewing my prospective clients. You can visit the "Services" page to see all the repairs, alterations and design opportunities. Some of my services include altering or making everything from your new living room curtains to your most personalized and sacred Wedding dresses.

INSTRUCTION

Currently, I teach individualized classes to anyone willing to learn the art of sewing. I feel strongly, that passing on my knowledge can help others view this diminishing art form as a very needed service skill. A good seamstress can be as handy as your local HVAC repairman! I am willing to teach you the basics of how to use your own home sewing machine, to completing that daunting project you might have had on your back burner for years. I have my child clearance, necessary for teaching the young ones, and the patience to teach to the older ones. I hope you are interested. Just contact me through my contact page located on the tab above.


I cannot wait to meet you!

Sincerely:


Andrea J. Hoover

Why A Stitch n' Time


Pennsylvania State University granted me a BFA in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Costume Design and Construction in 1999. I have always said, since I graduated, that I really recieved my degree in Sewing. I am able to do anything from sewing a double layered zipper into a Ski coat, to designing, patterning and completing wedding dresses tailored to my client's specifications. I have upholstered 4-wheeler seats, remade outdoor deck umbrellas and even made environmentally friendly baby diapers. I have over 20 years of sewing and retail experience both in the theatre arena and in the drycleaning business.
