Nicole Snow, pictured in this item, turned her love for crafting, creativity and desire to help others to establish Darn Good Yarn, a fast growing, multi-million dollar business in this region. The company recently moved into a new, larger location in Halfmoon after years in Schenectady. Nicole sells yarn, patterns and kits, craft supplies, clothing and office decor, jewelry, purses and accessories. The yarn is produced using reclaimed material from 600 impoverished men and women in India and Nepal. They receive between $8 and $16 a day. Darn Good Yarn is expected to make close to $9 million dollars this year. It has been listed as one of the fastest growing private companies in the nation. It has a mailing list of more than 250,000 people, along with 213,000 followers on Facebook and about 29,000 on Instagram.
Nicole is clearly one of the most enthusiastic and successful entrepreneurs in our Tech Valley.
