I learned to crochet at the age of 5 and haven't put my hook down since! I've published over 300 patterns, authored 7 crochet books, taught 2 courses with Craftsy, and launched the American Crochet Association in 2015. I currently live in Oregon with my husband, son, 2 cats and 1 dog.

"I have been crocheting for many years. I didn’t realize there was so much more to learn until I joined the American Crochet Association. Their courses are thorough, easy to understand, professional, and include clear pictures and instructions. I’m very happy I joined the ACA. My crochet has definitely improved since I started applying the concepts I’ve learned from the ACA!"

“I love the fact that you have the convenience of viewing the videos when your schedule allows and that you can re-view as needed. Salena Baca speaks at a pace that is appropriate for learning, neither too fast nor too slow. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone, from beginner to experienced, who wants to learn more about crochet.”

"Oh gosh. I just love the ACA. Every chance I get to talk about it, I do. I LOVE the new layout. For me, it's easier to stay focused. When too much information is offered at once I get easily distracted and therefore I don't retain the information as well.
I definitely feel more confident about yarn and have shared some of my newfound knowledge to other fiber artists that I know. I cannot wait for the next course to start! Thanks for all the hard work you guys do at the ACA. I just can't say enough good things about it. Proud to be an ACA member!"
