*Where are you from?I’m from Dilbeek, a small town next to Brussel, Belgium. Because nobody heard of Dilbeek but most people have heard of Bruseel I use Brussel as my home town.
*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?My friends know me as katkero on the internet so I decided on KatKeRo’s Corner as my shopname. I started selling because people kept bugging me to sell my shawl pins.
*What would you like people to think when they see your product?Unique, one of a kind.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?My current supply addiction is yarn and roving. I started out with a supply addiction to beads. I love blues and greens so I mostly buy those colors and I hardly buy yellow because I hate that color.
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?I’m a nurse on an ER in a small local hospital. I’m a member of an archery guild where we do wipschieten. It’s a traditional form of archery used by the guilds who protected the towns when practicing their archery. The guilds have a lot of traditions but luckily woman can shoot also these days. I also am a member of a folk dance group where I used to teach dancing.
*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?The needle felted items because it’s a new craft for me. I always wanted to do needle felting and I teached myself with YouTube.
*What keeps you motivated?Team members and thread members on Etsy.
*If you could give a piece of advice to a new shop - what would it be?Promote, promote and promote again.
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?My twitter acount: twitter.com/#!/katkero
On facebook you can find me under Kat KeRo. It’s my personal page, I don’t have a shop page.
