The Owner/ Store Manager

Stitch ‘n Knit started trading on 13 October 2014, when French native Stéphane Kenny (nee Rodrigues) decided to open her own craft, gift and clothing personalisation shop having run a similar store for a number of years previously.

Stéphane is from France but has lived in Ireland since 2006, having previously resided both in Saint-Malo Brittany and later in the Pays de la Loire region of France.  

Stéphane settled in Athlone soon after arriving in Ireland, where she now lives with her husband Cathal, and two sons Cillian & André.

Stéphane trained and worked in the area of traditional upholstery and soft furnishings during her formative years in France. Since coming to Ireland she has worked in retail clothing stores, including Dunnes Stores clothing department, Esprit and also managed the well-known French ladies knitwear boutique outlet Devernois, in Athlone for a number of years.

Stéphane has gained an in depth knowledge of the craft and clothing industry over many years, and prides herself on a keen eye for detail combined with excellent customer service. 

Stephane says "At Stitch ‘n Knit we always try to source our stock so that we can offer customers high quality products, at prices that make sense. We’re proud of our hard earned reputation for understanding and delivering on customers requirements.  

Enjoy your experience shopping in store or online with Stitch ‘n Knit. "

Warm Regards,
Stéphane Kenny
