Kia Ora, magic maker! My name is Francoise, but please feel free to call me Frenchie. I’m a Franco-Maori American-Australian living in Japan, slightly obsessed with anything under the Disney brand (especially Marvel and Star Wars) and all things handmade.

My mission is to evolve, and to grow. Right now, the way I’m doing that is enabling magic-makers and fiber-lovers (like you!) to transform yarn into unique handmade pieces to boost your confidence and creativity.

How? I design knitwear designs to inspire and delight, waiting for you to add your special touch to, and offer courses and books that transform knitters into confident designers. So if you’re in need some empowerment via knitting in your life, let’s ignite magic together!
