Itch to Stitch
Hi! I am Kennis Wong, owner and designer of Itch to Stitch sewing patterns. Actually, I am also the web/tech gal, customer support, drafter, illustrator, model, marketer and everything in between. Luckily, I do have a loyal partner in crime (a.k.a. my husband, Ray), who provides constant moral support, technical consultancy and beautiful photography.
I learned to sew when I was 13 years old in Hong Kong. I attended the so-called “technical” school where, in addition to normal subjects, girls had to learn typing, home economics and dress making. My first finished garment was a baby’s dress. And I learned to sew on a treadle machine. I just loved everything about it. Since then I have been sewing on and off, using commercial patterns from the Big 4, European sewing magazines and some independent designers. Finally, I said to myself, “Why don’t I design something?”
Itch to Stitch’s designs are really my personal style. They are modern and elegant. Perhaps they are not always simple to sew (because I love details!), but they always have high-quality finishes. Of course I want them to fit well; that’s why most of my designs have many sizes and different cup options. I am always looking for inspirations. I post them on Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/sewitchtostitch/), Instagram (http://instagram.com/itchtostitch) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ItchToStitchDesigns/).
