Bay area based designer, Stacy Iest Hsu has been designing for almost 20 years.  She grew up on her parents farm in the central valley where she often sketched and dreamed of being a designer.  After college, Stacy decided to move to San Francisco to try and make her mark as a designer.  Not sure what area of design she wanted to pursue, Stacy enrolled in a local school that focused on textile and surface design.  After her first class, she knew this was what she was meant to do.  After graduating, she worked for various companies such as Janie and Jack, Gap Baby and Tiny Prints.  Stacy has designed rugs, stationary and fabric for apparel but considers herself finally home designing fabric for Moda, which has been a lifelong dream.  

Stacy’s designs tend to be whimsical and sweet.  She loves designing novelty prints and has developed a passion for designing projects for all ages in her cut and sew panels.

Stacy is married and has three children that keep her very busy.  She loves spending time with them and is constantly inspired by their amazing talents.
