My name is Kenia and I am behind ShowroomCrochet. When I was young I wanted to be fashion designer but I opted finally for studying economics (I know, it is totally different). I worked as an accountant for many years, it was nice, I liked my job but I needed to find something more, something related with what I love, something related with create new things . During many years I tested some art crafts. On 2013 I started to crochet thanks to my mom who tough me how to work basic stitches, since then I haven´t been able to stop! , it was love at first sight. I am an enthusiastic crocheter. I love all arts crafts but crochet is my real passion. I enjoyed testing new techniques and yarns. When my crochet skills was quite enough I started to design my own crochet projects. One day I designed a baby shoes by chance and I realized that it was just what I wanted to do. On 2016 I opened my shop on Etsy and my first crochet blog. I had to learn lots of things: learn about photography, social media, basic concepts of marketing online, even programming language, etc… It was exhausting because, at the same time, I worked as an accountant for a company so my working day was 11 or 12 hours. My blog was not successful, I tried it but there were too many crochet blogs made from really talented people so I decided to focus on designing crochet pattern. At this time I designed the Vans style shoes , to my surprise, it become so popular so people was starting to know about my patterns. I thought ” well, it seems my persistence will pay off in the end” 😉
Since then I have been working in new designs and I am so grateful for each comments or reviews I have received about them. Designing is so funny but knowing that you like and enjoy crocheting my patterns mean a word to me.
As you can see, my story has its hits and mistakes, the most important thing is I have never stop trying and it is my message to you.
Now I am 38 years old and, although I am from Spain , I live in Haderslev (Denmark) with my husband. We moved some months ago so many changes are happening in my live but it is great because it gives me the chance to grow as a person. I work as a Virtual Assistant for a Spanish company and I usually add 1 or 2 working hours more per day to manage my little business which is my crochet pattern shop. It clearly proves that if you really love what you do you will take the time , no matter how much tired you are.
I love animals, I adore all of them. Now we are just my husband and me but we used to live with two beautiful dogs (boxer) , unfortunately Quina and Nahuel passed away but they are still in our heart and will be forever. I love traveling, watching TV series, good food, authentic people and ,of course, crocheting.
