Meet the Maker
My name is Frances
I’m the owner and maker behind LeFrances Handmade Crafts & Fibre Art. I’m a knitter, crocheter, and indie yarn dyer.
My interest in yarn/crafting in general started when I was around the age of nine. A sweet lady, whom I do not remember at all, taught me how to crochet while I was staying in guardians home (I know, I know..don’t be sad! I’ve come along way!).
I don’t remember making anything spectacular until 2015, when my coworker was knitting alllll the things! I was so intrigued, so I started crocheting again. Turns out, she did not know how to crochet and I did not know how to knit (two needles with no hook?! Wut?). Long story short, we taught each other and I began making everything I could!
Fast forward to 2018, when I randomly met a beautiful woman by the name of Katie (@fromthemilkparlor) through a social media event called, “GetYourYarnWishesGranted.” I expressed some interest in learning how to dye yarn but did not know the first step in getting started.
Sweet Katie sent me a few dye bottles and 3 mini skeins of yarn to start with! I mean, how sweet is that?! She was actually the first maker I introduced as part of my #makermondays series.
As you can see, it was out of pure generosity of strangers that led me to this wonderful community. Maker Mondays is just one idea I have for this wonderful community of makers. Stayed tuned to see what I come up with next!
Thanks for stopping by! Don’t be stranger, come say hi on any of my social media platforms.
