New Brand Toy Box

When I became the recipient of a Charles Sturt Business Development Grant this year, I wanted to use it to take my brand identity further, so as to better communicate who Dear Pru is as a business in my products and advertising.

The knitrepreneurs weekly podcast

Why The Knitrepreneurs? We’re a bit different…

There are a LOT of knitting podcasts out there. Does the world really need another one? What makes The Knitrepreneurs different from all the others? Our point of difference is that we cut the crusts off business concepts and serve them to you in knitter-friendly serving sizes. We aren’t business gurus, but what we do know, we’ll share, and welcome others add their insights.
