Madam Trico, alias Petra Janssens, is a former primary school teacher addicted to handicrafts.
My first great love was knitting. I’ve been knitting since I was 6, and until about 5 years ago that was my greatest passion. Then I found my pleasure in crocheting and Tunisian crochet and it became very difficult to divide my time between these 3 craft techniques. And now, a little over a year ago, a friend convinced me to learn to sew too. I immediately left and I sewed together a lot of clothes and handbags that year to tell you 🙂
When I saw the opportunity to open the store in Steenokkerzeel at the end of December, I didn’t hesitate for long. It was with a heavy heart that I said goodbye to 20 fantastic students, but I felt it was time for something new.
I can’t wait to share my passion for handicrafts with the world!
