Carol Ventura

I discovered tapestry crochet in Guatemala in the 1970’s. Since then I’ve explored the design potential of the technique, developed a system of diagramming patterns, and created a variety of projects, which are included in my tapestry crochet books and videos. For more about tapestry crochet, please look at my web page and blog.
