LISA SOUZA is an artisan dyer, colorist, handspinner, and creator of art-to-wear garments. Early in her career she and a partner started Knitwitz, where they knitted one-of-a kind garments and traveled the craft-fair circuit. Lisa then branched off to begin her own company, Lisa Souza Knitwear, creating finished garments that were sold in boutiques around the country. Soon after that, she learned to spin and began hand-dying yarn. Lisa started to offer her hand-dyed fibers to other knitters through her website lisaknit.com in 1999 where she continues to sell her hand-dyed yarns, handspun luxury yarns, and hand-dyed roving. In 2007, after moving to rural California, Lisa opened a large showroom and workshop. Lisa regularly participates in yarn fairs and festivals around the country.
