About Jennifer Thompson Miller, Expert Blogger

Jennifer Thompson Miller, otherwise known as Dizzy Lettuce, has been working with fabric and fibers since before she can remember! Her mother and grandmother were expert seamstresses and designers. Her mother taught her to sew at the young age of 12 years old. Even before that, Jennifer’s mother would consult with her in the fabric store as she picked out fashion fabrics.

Jennifer’s creative work right now is summed up best as color on fiber. “I learned to dye fabric and yarn some years ago and have had a business designing fabric and custom dyeing for interior designers as well as end consumers. I design the exclusive line of custom dyed yarn at Gauge Knits here in Austin, Texas, working with wool, alpaca, bamboo, silk, and more!”

Jennifer studied at Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas and has a B.A. in English and French. She spent a year abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France where she practiced her mastery in the speaking of the French language. She earned her M.A. in Marketing from the University of Texas at Austin. Jennifer also earned her M.S.P.chh from the University of Santa Monica (Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology, emphasis in consciousness, health, and healing.)

Jennifer is currently teaching yarn painting and knitting at Gauge Knits in Austin, Texas. She is also a Consulting Astrologer. She’s studied with many prominent astrologers, including Rob Hand, Caroline Casey, Jeff Greene, and more.

When we asked Jennifer why she enjoys helping Fabrics.net customers, she said, “It is my delight to assist others to learn about color on fiber!” She also loves working with Judith Gridley and Jessie Huey and what they’ve created at Fabrics.net.

Jennifer’s education is ongoing. She’s currently studying the history of weaving and textiles and how women’s work has created our culture. Jennifer also practices hot yoga several times a week. She shares her home with her two dogs and two cats. Jennifer feels very fortunate to have married the same person four times and thanks the jurisdictional marriage laws for same-gender couples.
