After a recent period of trials and tribulation, Sandra was ready for a fresh start for herself and her family. Instead of feeling defeated and giving up after facing hardship, she took matters into her own hands and found work at KNOWN SUPPLY. She’s working hard with a goal of going back to school and study cooking.

“I want to start over again. People around me complain about the father of my children and I want to get away from that. I’d like to buy a plot of land and start a business.”

“Eating lunch with my school friends. We shared everything we had so every lunch was like a buffet.”

“Love means respect, understanding and good communication.”

Did she make your product?

I have a beanie you knit over 5 years ago now and it's still one of my favorite beanies. I hope you've been well these many years and I wish you the best. Thank you.

I want to encourage to keep up fighting for your goals. You may feel alone at times, remember the Lord is with you , beside you, and the lifter of your head. Keep wise and kind people in your life.

Hi Sandra,

I am wearing the scarf you knitted and just love it. I bought it at a store called Whole Foods here in Massachusetts. It is very cold here because we just had a lot of snow, so it is keeping my very warm.

Thank so much and I just love the company you are working for :)

I LOVE the hat you made! I will wear it every time I go outside from now until May and every time I put it on, I say a prayer for you. It's a way we can be connected even though we are across the world from each other :-) Thank you for all of your hard work. God brings beauty from the ashes and has purpose and a good plan for your life! He loves you with an immeasurable love and you can trust Him! With much love!

my dad recently bought back one of your hats from his travels for me, and it is so beautiful and warm, the fact that i get to wear it every day might just be the only good thing about British weather.. thank you so much for my lovely hat, and i wish you the very best with your fresh start ^_^

Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will forever cherish the hat I reviewed for many reasons. My last name is Custodio, however recently I have gotten engaged. My finances last name is Castillo. When I revived the hat with the name sandra Castillo I accused him of writing the name on the hat. He laughed it off and said the hat arrived in a sealed box inside of a sealed bag, which it did. I showed my entire family this new hat with my soon to be new name. My mother in law being extremely religious said it was a sign.
I admire your strength and continued dedication to taking care of your family. I hope all your future endeavors of becoming a chef come true. Best of luck.

Thank you so much for the beautiful grey hat you made. I just love it. It's very cold up here right now and these last few months have been trying for my family. Today I was able to take my husband to lunch after taking him to the doctor to learn how to give him the shots he needs everyday. At the cafe they had wonderful knit and crochet goods by the beautiful people of KK. I fell in love. In this cold weather it felt good to treat myself to a warm hat.
Keep doing the good work, Sandra. I know things are hard right now but you sound like a strong woman with real, achievable goals. I believe in you. I hope you always believe in yourself.
Much love,

Thank you Sandra for creating my Riley Hat! Thank you for your time, skills, and efforts involved in creating this hat. It fits wonderfully and is very comfortable to wear, even in the sun! I want to wish you and your family the very best moving forward in a very tough situation. I hope you are able to relocate and start the business of you choosing. I believe in you and your ability to go out and achieve what you want to do. I know this because women are very strong and more often than not achieve what they put their hearts and minds to. Thank you again and congratulations on the start of your new journey!!

I have the Holland (I think!) scarf in Orange made by you and I absolutely love it! My boyfriend gave it to me for Christmas and it keeps me so warm. I also went through a major life change recently. I left an abusive boyfriend and started over with nothing. Now life is so much better and I'm back in school... I was terrified starting all over again with nothing but now I wish I had done it sooner! You can do it, just remember that life goes on! Best of luck to you in your future endeavors!
