Rosa Mundi Handknits designs require the contributions of several people.
Years ago, Elizabeth Newton learned what fun it was to knit with friends. Over time she found that knitting was immensely creative, absorbing and satisfying. A serendipitous conversation resulted in her spending more than seven years working as an assistant to Penny Straker. Elizabeth strives to create designs that are fun to knit and wear. She envisions her knitwear in all places, from country walks to the streets of New York City. She lives in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, surrounded by farms near the sea.
Allison O'Mahoney is a technical editor who loves helping independent designers produce professional quality patterns that knitters will love to knit. Allison lives in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, where she can usually be found within arm's reach of her knitting bag and calculator (and quite often either a coffee or a pint, depending on the time of day).
Andrea Berger loves the way knitting and wearing wool keep us connected to nature and our creativity. She is a holistic educator integrating movement, meditation, baking and parenting. Living between city and country, she works with bringing into balance the pushes and pulls of contemporary living.
Photographer, Photo Stylist and Graphic Designer
Nadine Freniere is a multi-media artist living in Brooklyn, NY. The aesthetic and branding of Rosa Mundi Handknits is a collaboration between Elizabeth and Nadine with Photography and Graphic Design as the main aspects. Nadine spends most of her time creating design and photography, and exploring a variety of mediums with the support of her daily meditation practice.
