About THE CATALYST

Kia Ora! My name is Francoise, but feel free to call me Frenchie.

I am a Yarn Alchemist: I transform yarn into knitwear designs with an emphasis on self-care, self-discovery, selflessness and self-expression in order to create a more enriching and engaging experience between you, your yarn and your needles.

My mission is to evolve and grow, and right now, the way I do that is by helping my Fibre Muses, like you, dive deep into themselves to find their creativity and magic. 

As someone who has been designing patterns for almost three years now and have created a successful brand and career out of it, I've also taught others how to become Yarn Alchemists themselves and set them on the path to developing their own knitwear design brands. I like to consider myself a Catalyst rather than a teacher, as I ignite the spark of creativity and transformation, encouraging and empowering you to take the next steps needed to go forward without fear.
