My Bio

I fell in love with the colorful shoulder bags tapestry crocheted by Mayan men in Guatemala when I was a Peace corps volunteer there in the 1970's. I've been exploring the design potential of the technique ever since, developing a system of graphing two and three-dimensional pieces, which you can see in my tapestry crochet books and videos. My web site at includes links to tutorials and patterns, many of which are free. My blog at features ". . . the rest of the story", including the history, tapestry crochet around the world, and insight into my work and the work of others.
