In 2009, Leanne Pressly was working at Interweave Press consulting clients on print advertising when she realized they needed so much more. She launched The Wool Wide Web with services specific to knitting companies and grew the company to 30+ retainer clients in just 3 years. The newly rebranded Stitchcraft Marketing emerged in 2013 to encompass all our other crafting passions and provide the same results for companies in the yarn, fabric, beading, paper, and crafting sectors.
Principal owner and multi-hat wearing fearless CEO of Stitchcraft Marketing. Leanne holds an M.A. in Sociology and a B.A. in English and has 20+ years of experience in sales and marketing. Prior to starting the agency, she owned a website design and hosting business for 10 years. She’s been a knitter since she was 18 and as a multi-craftual crafter sews garments and quilts, so she behaves like, and certainly thinks like, your customers.
