Flore is a member of our eCom team, so she's often the voice behind our emails and the hands that pack up all your lovely orders. She started with the team last summer and she says her favourite part of her job are her co-workers, whom she says make Stephen & Penelope a warm, inviting environment [thanks Flore!]. She also enjoys discovering all yarn related things, and that she learns something new every shift.

Flore's grandma taught her how to knit when she was a child, and over the holidays last year, they picked up their lessons again. Flore is now knitting her first hat with her grandma's help. Once she has the hang of things, she's planning to make a small selection of sweaters for her two dachshunds because they’re always cold!

Flore is Dutch, but grew up in Mozambique, Italy, Belgium, and lived for over 10 years in New York City. Besides her new hobby, Flore is an illustrator and photographer and worked in Montessori schools and as an art teacher before she returned to The Netherlands. She's now studying for her bachelors in Psychology, with an interest in art therapy.
