Pilar has struggled for a long time to support her family and to provide a life that she did not have growing up. Her family was not able to support her beyond sixth grade so she moved to Lima and worked various jobs as a nanny and in restaurants. Since then, she has been able to transform her life. She has a new sense of independence and now is able to spend more time with her children, teaching them to be good people.

I have to thank you once again Pilar. I have become a fan of Krochet Kids and a big fan of yours. This is the second item that I have purchased that was created by you. Your skills are appreciated and are truly illustrated in the well-made garments you produce. The “Amor” tee that I own feels like it was made for me and I love that way that it feels. You are truly gifted and I am lucky to own not one, but two wonderful pieces of clothing that I can proudly say came from you. Thank you so very much.
September 1, 2015

Thank you so much Pilar. I absolutely love my “Hudson Long Sleeve” hoodie and I am a man that loves hoodies. You are clearly gifted with the sewing needle because it fits me perfectly. Awesomely light weight with an even better stretch, I did not even need to break it in. First time I put your creation on, it felt like I had owned it for years. I probably wear it too much and that is definitely a good thing. Thank you Pilar, I would not have the perfect hoodie without you.
August 16, 2015
I recieved a shirt that you made as a gift and I love it. I wanted to thank you sincerely and tell you that I am so very proud of you for striving to overcome the struggle. I too have been brought through some struggle and hardships and God has brought me through victorious. He lives and He is my only strength. Some days it has been hard for me to get up and push through the pain but it is other men and women who press on who the Lord uses to encourage and strengthen me. For this I love you and pray for you that He provides for you more and more, and opens new doors beyond what you could imagine.

I recently went to a Christian music festival and I purchased a tank top that was made by you. Not only did I think the shirt I purchased was beautiful and inspiring, I think you are as well. It is amazing that my gorgeous Love Africa shirt was hand stitched by you, but it is also amazing that God has worked in your life to allow you the opportunity to change your life. Reading about how God worked in your life has inspired me to look for the hand of God in mine. I am so glad that God has worked in your life and allowed me to witness a part of that work. I pray that God continues to be made known in you and through your work. Thank you for the shirt, Pilar, but more than that, thank you for being such an inspirational woman.

Thank you so much for the iPad case! I have some weird thing with always wanting different iPad cases. My girlfriend that is all about Krochet Kids got it for me at Fourth Estate. I've never owned a Krochet Kids item before, but as of now, I want to continue to buy all the items and thank each and every single one of you individually! They're so cute and I want my kids wearing Krochet Kids instead of Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch. This is my first Krochet Kids and certainly won't be my last. You'll always have a little special place in my heart! Again, thank you so much!

You do such beautiful work. I love the Marie scarf that my future daughter-in-law gave me for Christmas. I was so thrilled to see that you made it using Alpaca wool. My favorite animal.

Thank you very much.
