Fibergé is now a TWO-woman show! Keep reading to meet our owners. 

MEET LYSHA BROAD:

   
   
 

I'm wife to one, mom to four, lover of practical jokes, and destroyer of many fine dance moves. I learned to crochet, sew, and knit in young adulthood. Making things with my own two hands had given me more satisfaction (and, let's be real, frustration) than I could ever expect, and I fell in love with handcrafts. In 2011, my husband lost his job and I set out to fill our fridge by knitting and sewing. I listed my original creations online and I had plenty of work to keep me busy. I eventually outgrew my teeny home space, so I rented a studio at the Pendleton Art Center where I painted, sewed, knitted, and designed. At that point, the previous owner of Fibergé reached out and asked if I'd be interested in reopening Fibergé down the road. I eventually agreed, got to work, and I'm beyond grateful that I said yes! After my fourth baby came home, I realized I needed someone to come alongside me at the shop so I could be more present with my family. My new partner, Toby, was my top pick from day one and I'm thrilled that she decided to come on board. I'm excited to see what amazing things we accomplish together!

Blessings,
Lysha
   


MEET TOBY GANZ:

 



I have been a maker long before the term was coined. I had been sorely missing a place from which to launch big ideas and a community to join in the fun; when Lysha approached me and asked me to partner with her at Fibergé, it was a dream come true. I enjoy a multitude of fiber arts. I knit (of course!), crochet a bit, weave a lot, felt and sew sort-of, and am willing to try anything at least twice. I have a deep passion for teaching others these crafts because I believe that once learned, these activities provide us with a space to find out more about ourselves as we rhythmically click along. I have been an avid member of the Weaver's Guild of Greater Cincinnati for five years and I hope to spread my weaving passion to our Fibergé friends. Come take a class and learn something new! I look forward to being a part of Fibergé and to meeting all of our lovely customers. Please stop by to introduce yourself. Wishing you a very happy, peaceful, and creative 2019. 


My best,
Toby Ganz
