Suzanne da Rosa
Is a knitting historian, master lace knitter, designer, and lifelong fiber arts enthusiast. She’s passionate about the history and re-creation of antique knitted lace. Her work has been exhibited in the Shetland Museum and in fiber arts shows in the US.
She has walked across Spain twice, lived and travelled extensively throughout Mexico working to advocate for and promote master artisans, created a national award-winning community wide poetry festival, filmed video documentary about the tin artisans in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and developed Inner Graffiti, a life size painting and poetry project for women and girls.
When she’s not knitting, she can be found in any one of numerous art classes, linoleum block printing from old family photos, studying the family genealogy, gardening and exploring nature near her home on the Mendocino Coast.
