This is me.
So I know I'm super late to the party but I figured it was about time I introduced myself. The girl behind @ .
I always love to know who is behind a brand, a small business, an idea. The person behind the social media profile, inspiring works of art and behind the screen.
It's around a year or so overdue but here I am. My name's Katie Dewick and last summer my obsession with all things macrame began. It all started with a fantastic short workshop at @ in Shere. My absolute favourite little shop ever and Libby, the owner is a complete babe- go there if you are ever in the Guildford/ Surrey area. I was gifted the workshop as a 30th birthday present from @ and @.fiona, thank you both 🙏🏻 The last 18 months have been a steep learning curve full of ups and downs, excitement and disappointments but you've got to ride that small business wave and roll with the punches. I've worked with some amazing people along the way and can't thank all of them enough for their support.
I never thought that a short workshop would turn into this little venture but I'm so happy and grateful it did. All the custom orders, styled shoots, events, international customers and just general love that has come my way has massively overwhelmed me but I'm super proud of what I've achieved so far.
Sure, theres been moments of "what the hell am I doing" and "perhaps I'm mad to take this super short notice order on" but all those moments have made me stronger and more courageous with this beautiful art form. I have to give my darling husband a mention in this journey as it's been him that's put up with my crazy ideas, walks in the woods trawling around to find the 'right tree' for a photoshoot, tears, stress and he's cut nearly ALL THE ROPE. Like miles of rope and he's never complained once.
Lots of exciting things to come in 2019. I'm super excited to say I've just taken my first big order with a incredible shop and business up North, will spill the beans on that one in the New year. To anyone I've made something for, worked with, sort advice from, met at an event, a million times THANK YOU. You're all awesome.
