Katerine prides herself on her work, her family, and being a good friend to all. We met Katerine a few years ago when she heard about KNOWN SUPPLY from her mother. She was ready to leave her job as hostess at a small restaurant and start gaining the skills and resources she needed to provide for her family. With her forward-thinking mindset, Katerine is now saving and hoping to start her own small business.

Dear Ms. Hilario,

Thank you so much for my gorgeous infinity scarf! Your knitting is so perfect. And the wine and black combination is so easy to add to anything I'm wearing. The scarf was a gift from my son and his wife, which they selected together. My daughter-in-law found Known Supply and my son chose the exact item. That's a big compliment because he's very, very picky. I asked them not to buy gifts for me, but instead to make contributions instead. Known Supply is perfect because they get the satisfaction of giving a beautiful gift to make me happy and I get the satisfaction that the purchase did something positive. I'm so glad that you found Known Supply. I wish you great success in starting your own business, completing your education, and caring for and educating your children.

Hi Katerine,

I love my navy blue beanie with the pom-pom! I wore it all the time, then I accidentally put it through the wash and it shrank. I don't see another one of the same color, but I will keep looking here. I love that I can see who made my hat and that I can write this note to you to thank you. My hat is beautiful and well made--thank you for making it.

Hello Katerine,

I just wanted to tell you how much I love the headwear I purchased "The Walker"; but I mainly wanted to tell you that you inspire me soo much. I only wish I had more to give to people like yourself. I hope the small donation and purchase helps, at least a little. I also hope, very much, that your dreams of having a business and reuniting with your family come true. Don't ever give up and good luck. I hope that, one day, I am buying a product from your very own online store. Have a great week ,and again, good luck, Katerine. I can't express, in words, how much I want you to have a great, successful life. Keep on keeping on!
