About

Well, for a person who cannot draw a straight line, it's surprising - to say the least - that that same person can design patterns.

Hi, I'm Konna, the one behind Kentima designs. If you take a look at my patterns, you'd probably be able to guess a lot about me. I'm a book lover, a bit of a geek and I love a good laugh.
How come I design cross stitch patterns? Well, I may not draw (or sing, or write, or paint for that matter) but I surely can stitch! I've been stitching since I was 5 years old, and though I've tried a lot of different stitching techniques, cross stitching has always been my favorite. But the designing part? It all started some years ago, when I decided to turn an inside joke of my sister's into a pattern and stitch it for her birthday. After much trial and error, I got it right and the most amazing thing, it really translated well on the fabric. That came as a huge surprise to me because, as stated above, I cannot draw a straight line. After that, everybody seemed to want a custom pattern themselves, so I ended up mostly designing patterns than actually stitching them!
The idea for opening a shop here came from my best friend, and after some thought (and a lot of laughing, because I thought he was joking), I gave it a try. So here I am!
