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 400 patterns, 7 books (and counting), and taught 2 courses with Craftsy (so far). My goal is to pass crochet through the generations in better hands than we found it, and that’s why I started the ACA.

Peace + Love + Crochet
