My Family

My Family
Ofcourse being a bug automatically means that I have a huge extended family. I mean enormous, giant, sprawling! But most of my time is not spent with my bug family, rather it’s spent with my work family. I realized that I haven’t mentioned them at all! Well, today is the day I am going to introduce you.

SmartKnitKIDS is a part of the Knit-Rite family. Knit-Rite has been manufacturing medical textiles for over 85 years. Everything that Knit-Rite makes helps people and it’s all made in the USA. It’s a family owned business and the family environment is incredible! It really does feel like my bug family (except I’m the only bug). Knit-Rite’s roots were in the Orthotic and Prosthetic industry, but have branched out to include consumer brands such as Therafirm, SmartKnit, and SmartKnitKIDS. Everyone here is honored and humbled by the products we produce.

SmartKnitKIDS is proud to occupy a corner of Knit-Rite!

Our Trip to the 2010 Boom Boom Room

We just fly in from the 5th Annual Boom Boom Room Pre-Golden Globes party (and boy, are our arms tired! HA!). An all I can say is wow! Two jammed packed days of celebrities loving our products! I can hardly believe it.

The event took place on January 15th through the 16th. We set up our booth the day before. Check out how fabulous it looked here. (It was grueling work for an ant my size, but I diverge. And, yes, SmartKnitKIDS and Preggers are both a part of Knit-Rite, Inc. If you’re Preggers, check out us out. We’re giving away free samples if you take our quick survey!) Between the hours of 11 am and 6pm celebrities and media stopped by our table to chat, to check out SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Socks, and become our BFF for life (ok, probably not the latter, but a bug can dream, right?).

The response was overwhelming. Everyone seemed to love the idea of socks without a seam and socks that fit to the foot and actually stay on. We gave away samples to celebrities such as Kim Porter and the Combs twins, Jodi Sweetin, Joey Lawrence, Mike Sucsey (winner of a Golden Globe for Grey Gardens), Constance Marie, Lou Diamond Phillips, Larry Birkhead and Danielynn, and many more. Check out some of our great pictures on Facebook. The complete list of celebs that we met is below.

SmartKnitKIDS has already been mentioned on the Huffington Post! Keep your eyes peeled for more articles about us!

Needless to say we had an amazing time! We want to thank everyone from the Boom Boom Room for a wonderful event!
