Old Maiden Aunt


Scottish dyer Lilith is *the* Old Maiden Aunt, yarn-dyer extraordinaire, and Queen of Everything (at least at the OMA studio), according to the OMA website. After a circuitous path through various forms of education & employment (encompassing a degree in English Literature, waitressing, office/admin work, and training as a violin maker) she finally found her niche/obsession in the world of knitting, spinning, & dyeing. Among the features on OMA is a fund to pitch in a small amount to make yarn more affordable for knitters who could benefit.
