About

Designing cross stitch pattern and stitching them has been a long time passion of mine. I have been designing cross stitch patterns since the early years of 2000 while I was working full time as a designer in an Architecture firm in Philadelphia, PA.
I had learned to cross stitch in my elementary years where sewing and learning various stitches was required in our Home Economics class. Cross stitching hasn't been an obsessive hobby I had until I was in my early twenties. I had then a desire to design my own pattern. In my early working years, I started graphing my designs on paper by hand with pencil and colored pencils. And years later, with today's technology, I am able to produce patterns on a cross stitch program.
In 2009, I launched "Lila's Studio" and joined Etsy the following year. Painting, drawing, playing the piano are other hobbies I also enjoy. I love going to museums, antique shops, craft fairs and attending arts…
