In 2023, KnitLeaks was created with the aim of becoming a global information hub for crafters. We also had a specific goal of participating in as many yarn events as we could. This was a daunting task, with challenges such as different time zones, locations, languages, and cultures. Yet, we remained steadfast and committed to our goal. As the year advanced, we saw a marked increase in our brand recognition.
