It wasn't very long ago that Liz Miller set up shop at 91 Germain Street, but she and her studio, Good Fibrations,?are very much a part of the uptown heartbeat already. ?Liz is a true artist, always with a strand of some type of organic fibre in her hand, or perhaps a bottle of rich colour as she anxiously prepares to dye natural wool into a colourful hue to be worked into something beautiful. ?Liz would be working the loom, or knitting, or creating something home-made no matter where she is, we are lucky to have her here in this cozy studio on the corner. Stop in and have a chat with this lovely lady, and maybe grab some yarn for a nice new pair of mittens this winter.?
