Have You Met This Artist? 3/12/2012


Today, I have Nicole Snow to introduce to you! She is SUCH an awesome lady! But don’t take my word for it! Read for yourself!!!

Ok a little blurb about me and Darn Good Yarn:

In 2008, Nicole Snow created “Darn Good Yarn” by combining her two passions in life—art and helping others. The idea was simple: created high-quality, beautiful yarn without using child labor… all while helping the women of India and Nepal support their families.

Within a short period of time, Snow and Darn Good Yarn had a passionate following. “To our customers, it isn’t just about high quality fibers,” Snow explains. “It really is about helping people. That’s what separates Darn Good Yarn from the other companies.”

Her yarn is such fun! Just imagine all the projects you can make with it!

Here are 10 fun facts about me and Darn Good Yarn: 1- Darn Good Yarn saved 6,000 pounds of waste from going into landfills last year and turned it into fantastic yarn! 2- My favorite book is Atlas Shrugged 3- Darn Good Yarn just sponsored two daughters of one of the spinners who makes “Darn Good Yarn” to go to school this semester! 4- I’ve moved my house and my business 10 times in 5 years 5- I’m from NJ originally, now I’m in Maine! 6- I love wearing bright colored lipstick 7- My favorite movie(s) are Kill Bill 1&2 8- I’m a lazy knitter–Sure I can make the complicated but I like things simple that fit into my schedule 9- My favorte meal I like to cook is roasted duck with roasted brussel sprouts 10- I am in love with my business–I never feel like I’m working and it always warms my heart when I see the projects that people make with my yarn
