Got a question that's not listed?

I already know how to crochet, who is this for?


If you crochet, we have a course, training or workshop just for you.

Whether you're looking become a better crocheter, or build a crochet business, we have something you can start right away and get great results.

Even if you've been crocheting "forever", you'll learn something new and helpful when you join the ACA.

Everyone does.

YouTube and Google are free, why should I give this a try?

Because there is an abundance of information on the web, you might be tired of:

  • Annoying and distracting ads that come with free resources - Exhausting!
  • Key details of patterns and tutorials that are confusing or missing - Is it you, or the pattern?
  • Scrolling through site after site and still not finding exactly what you want to know - wasting time and yarn.

Here, a crochet library (the Learning Path) is paired with a new challenge or bonus every month, making your Crochet Membership a valuable resource to help you crochet more, better, faster and with less mistakes.

I'm not ready to invest in this right now.

We understand!

In the mean time, join our free community to share your crochet projects, ask questions, make friends, learn and grow.

Community is important, and I look forward to meeting you there!

"I love the ACA! The classes are very informative - even for crocheters who think they know everything! And I love that I get rewarded with a certificate for passing the lessons!

- Courtney Knorr-Warriner, ACA member since 2015

"I have truly enjoyed taking the courses by the American Crochet Association. I have been crocheting for 5 year before I found the ACA and they have taught me so much more than just crochet stitches. I highly recommend taking the Learning Path course and becoming an ACA member. Such a great community. Thank you American Crochet Association!

- Monica Mercado, ACA member

“Even though I have been crocheting for 47 years (and counting), I find the courses interesting and enlightening. Since I'm mostly self-taught, a lot of my knowledge and experience is intuitive and informal. American Crochet Association has helped me to define that knowledge and therefore makes me more confident of what I know.”

- Hinda Ader, Facebook reviews

"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!"

- Connie E., ACA member since July 2016

“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.”

- Mary Stanton, Facebook reviews

"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!"
