Meet the Team + Sharing Our Gratitude

We took some time here at French Knot to write down what we are thankful for this time of year with a few questions. 
Lindsay is our leading woman. She is the owner of French Knot and the head designer here. Her creativity drives new designs and concepts daily.

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

 I enjoy traveling home to New England to see family and friends that I haven't seen in several months ❤️

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

 Delicious food! Everything my mom makes is always amazing. Her cinnamon buns might be my favorite. 😋

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

I'm so thankful for the incredible team at French Knot! They are fun, driven, and make amazing things happen every day. 

I'm also incredibly grateful for the artisans in Nepal, who are the most talented knitters in the world.❣️🧶

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

Can I only choose one!? The Hazel Mittens in all the colors, Molly Beret in Melon, Fiona in Turquoise.... I could keep going.....☺️

Clara is our Assistant Designer. Her talent compliments Lindsays creative direction and she is a master of design. 

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

Definitely the pies and mashed potatoes that I will be filling my plate with... and, of course, seeing all of my loved ones. I come from a very large family of nine children. During the holidays, my most treasured memories are of all us kids squished together, on the oversized sofa in my mother’s living room, tuning in to our most beloved Christmas movies (Albert Finney Scrooge, Meet Me in St Louis, Holiday , It’s A Wonderful Life, The Bishop’s Wife, White Christmas just to name a few). 🥧💕

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

My family (like most in Indiana) sit down after the big meal to a heated, but entertaining, game of euchre. “A card laid is a card played,” my uncle exclaims at his opponent’s every hand-to-forehead move.😏

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

Going to Nepal to meet the artisans, who manufacture our goods, stands out. French Knot works with suppliers providing a fair wage and comfortable working conditions for these talented women. Spending the last two weeks in Nepal, I was so fortunate to witness the whole creation process of our goods and assist Lindsay in finalizing designs for the upcoming line. 🥰

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

The Molly in emerald: this beret, with its mix of pattern, embroidery, and tiny pompom, nods to the 1940s, which is my favorite fashion and movie era.💚

Trista is our Operations Manager. She is in charge of all things coming from Nepal as well as all things going out of our busy warehouse. 

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

I love the fall weather and all the beautiful trees here in Lafayette. 🍂

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

We change things up every year. I just enjoy spending the time off with my kids & family. 💜

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

I'm thankful that French Knot provides a living wage for female artisans in Nepal. 🧶

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

The Vintage Chalet in Mustard. 💛

Alex is our Marketing and Operations Coordinator. She works along side Trista during our busy season to get our inventory into the loving hands of many.

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

What I enjoy the most about the Holidays is binge watching old movies with my parents.📺

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

My Favorite Thanksgiving tradition is of course the food and the football. My mother makes the best Green Bean Casserole, so I enjoy helping and hanging out in the kitchen. 🍴🏈

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

I am thankful for the super awesome warehouse staff/Santa’s elves who make big shipments a breeze.📦🎅

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

My Favorite French Knot piece would have to be the Vintage Chalet. 🤩

Melissa is our Sales Coordinator. She is in contact with all boutiques to help with orders during this busy time. She also works on marketing strategies alongside Stephanie. 

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

Spending time with mine and Eric’s families is definitely my favorite. This is always a great time for us to play games and enjoy amazing food with our favorite people! 🥰

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

Playing spoons with my entire dads side of the family, grandparents too! It usually gets quite competitive with everyone jumping over the table...blood has only been drawn once! 😬

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

I love to hear from customers how much they love the pieces they purchase! I also enjoy speaking to the amazing boutique owners who are all so sweet! 💕

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

My favorite French Knot Piece is the Deco Vine Hat in Blue. It is full of small and pretty details that make it such a beautiful piece. I also think it’s impossible to look bad in blue so this hat is magical.

Stephanie is our Sales and Marketing Manager. She works heavily on Marketing and Sales ideas and ways to best connect with our customers.  

1. What do you enjoy most about Thanksgiving/this holiday season?

My whole family gets together, there are about 50+ of us, and my grandmothers homemade noodles are definitely the highlight! My family is Amish so there is no football on the TV. We eat lunch then play games until dinner time rolls around (where we get to eat again)😉. We can get pretty rowdy when it comes to the game of Spoons! Since my family is Amish once evening comes we are conversing, playing games, and eating by candle light. It's such a relaxing and fun filled day, it's my absolute favorite holiday!

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving family tradition?

Thanksgiving is such communal holiday and everyone in the family brings a dish. After dinner we pass around a bowl with "chores" and everyone pulls a chore to do. It makes the clean up after dinner so much more fun!

3. What are you most thankful for while working at French Knot?

The variety of the every day! We are a small company that produces a large amount so each of us wear may hats, without sounding too cliche. 😉 It is never boring and it is always colorful.

4. What is your favorite French Knot piece?

I love the Paris in Berry and the Slouchy Brooch in Emerald, which is funny because I have very little color anywhere else in my wardrobe.
