Welcome to the
American Crochet Association!
If you’re here, you love crochet. It’s your hobby, pastime, business, and sometimes therapy. The ACA is dedicated to helping crocheters help themselves so that crochet can be passed through the generations in better hands than we found it.
Crochet more, better, faster & with less mistakes!
Learn + Teach + Write + Sell
Hi, I’m Salena Baca!
Founder, host & lead educator with the ACA.
I learned to crochet at the age of 5 and haven’t put my hook down since. I’ve published over 300 patterns, 7 books (and counting), and taught 2 courses with Craftsy (so far). My goal is to help crocheters to help themselves, and that’s why I formed the American Crochet Association.
Peace + Love + Crochet

The Sagebrush Skirt is worked from the top down in easy-to-follow stitch repeats. And, you can adjust the length as you work to make a custom style that you love!
The Single Cluster Washcloth is worked with a textured stitch motif, creating the perfect surface for scrubbing anything you need in the bath and kitchen!
If you love to crochet easy blankets with beautiful stitch designs, give this openwork pattern a try!
