Born in Peru, I love everything hand made, specially things made with yarn and embroidery floss. Bright colors in nature and pre-Columbian textiles inspire me, join me to explore my cross stitch designs.

Hello all you lovely humans of the world!! My name is Alexis and I am lover of cross stitch and needlework. I found this passion four years ago while in the mist of looking for a new hobby. I knew that I loved the idea of working with yarn or thread but I didn’t know where to start! Well a few trips to the craft store lead me down a wonderful road. Never in a million years did I think that finding a little kit at one of the big box craft stores would lead me down such a magical journey and I have been hooked ever since! I love this hobby and it has brought so much joy and friendships to my life. One of my main goals in this community is to continue to share my passion for cross stitch with other BIPOC as there aren’t many of us out there putting needle to fabric and I want to change that! Needlework is for everyone and I hope that my presence in this community continues to encourage diversity and equity! I hope you join me on this adventure ❤️❤️

I learned to cross stitch from my mom, and loved the fact that I could follow a pattern to make art. I’ve been stitching ever since, and now design cross stitch patterns as well.

My lifetime love of playing with fiber started in childhood when my grandmother taught me to crochet. A quilter, knitter, jewelry maker, and bead weaver, I taught myself to cross stitch in 2019 by watching Flosstube videos after finally regaining some fine motor control in my hands after developing debilitating fibromyalgia.
The Diversity in Stitching Team would like to sincerely thank the following stitchers for their invaluable insight, perspective, and feedback in the development of this project:
