Santa Cruz, CA, September 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As October approaches, the focus on breast cancer awareness ramps up. And because about 1 in 8 people will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives, it’s a cause close to many of us, knitters or not, to think about.
There are several things we can do to prevent breast cancer but certainly knitters will enjoy one in particular. Jordana Paige, the designer who brought you handbags like The Knitter’s Purse and Bella, donates 10 percent of the retail value for every purchase of The Knitter’s Satchel in pink to the fight against breast cancer.
“Because so many knitters are women and breast cancer affects so many of us, I want to help raise awareness,” Jordana Paige said. “That’s one of the reasons I donate from sales year-round. October shouldn’t be the only month we think about this.”
If you haven’t encountered one of these bags, Jordana designed them for knitters in mind, and being she’s a knitter herself, The Knitter’s Satchel has all sorts of specialized features.
Two circlets will prevent your yarn from tangling and you can easily access six pockets for tools along the outside, protected by a flap pocket. There’s also a circular needle holder and a removable zipper pouch, making it easy to leave your knitting in the backseat while you make a quick stop at the store.
So while exercising and avoiding alcohol are two things anyone can do to prevent breast cancer, Jordana Paige’s Knitter’s Satchel in pink gives the gift of style, organization, as well as cash to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
