Loren's Badass Chick

I am out on maternity leave, but each week I have a new Badass Chick for you! If you have any recommendations for Badass Chick, please email me when I return to the air. In the mean time, be sure to follow me on social @LorenRaye and I'll be back before you know it!

 

If you're looking for a Valentine's Day gift, I got you covered! You have 13 days and don't say I never got you anything! Christina Fagan of Beacon Hill is the CEO and CKO (that's Chief Knitting Officer) of S*** That I Knit (it rhymes. You get it). 

 

When she was 10 years old Christina learned to knit from her mom, and she has been knitting ever since. Over time, knitting grew from her hobby to a way she could make a living, but Christina knew she wanted to empower other women at the same time. 

 

Christina did lots of Googling to figure out how to best grow her brand and came across a non-profit that connects businesses with artisans around the world. She got connected with a group of women knitters in Peru who are now responsible for knitting Christina's supply. She said the response she's gotten back from the knitters she employs in Peru is amazing. I think it's so awesome that Christina not only is able to build a brand doing something that she loves, but she's also able to empower women to create their own incomes while also being able to work from home and support their family. So cool! (PS: her stuff is super cute, too!)
