2023 YarnYAY! Designers in Residence

In an effort to support designers in a meaningful way and breathe fresh air into our monthly box pattern selections, each year we team up with a couple of talented folks to be our Designers in Residence. Each will be featured every month for six of our cornerstone boxes. We’re excited to announce who we’ll work with in 2023 —  let’s say, hello!
