The Star Maidens
Stories of Maidens are prevalent throughout our human history. They are depicted as beautiful, smart, seductive and also innocent. Many cultures have a myth of Maidens, from Buddhist, Greek, Aboriginal, Native American, Celtic and Norse, African. The Star Maidens are known across most cultures and are commonly known as the Pleiades by their Greek Astronomical name.
I found Star Maiden stories in every culture, and every story was a variation of the same basic myth. Seven or Nine or Twelve Maidens, they either come to earth from the heavens and take human lovers, uniting earth to the sky and fate. In other myths they are innocent maidens on earth that are elevated to the heavens and become Star Maidens.For this kit I have chosen the Native American Myth of the Star Maidens. There were twelve maidens but the most common myth is about one of the Star Maidens who leaves the heavens and comes to earth.

Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say hello at KNIT CITY in Vancouver. It was a fabulous show. I was thrilled to meet so many of you.
I mostly dye yarn & spinning fibre, some rug hooking wool and a few hundred silk scarves a year. The silk scarves are sold through a sister company, Rocky Mountain Wildrags, and are bought almost exclusively by cowboys!
