CYC Certified Crochet Instructor is to Teach at Yarn Matters

A local yarn shop Yarn Matters welcomes a new crochet teacher Connie Lynch.

Lynch is a Certified Crochet Instructor through the Craft Yarn Council and has been teaching crochet since 2013. She has been designing since 2009 with her first pattern published in Interweave Crochet Magazine in 2012. She was a participant in several community charity and art projects, including Something in the Water, an ongoing global eco-art project that was first displayed at the American Jewish Museum in Pittsburgh, PA in May of 2011. She is also the co-founder of the Central Texas Crochet Guild, located near Fort Hood, where she and her husband moved from in 2016 with their son, Carson. They now live in Williamsburg along with their dog, Baxter, and cat, Truman.

"I've always loved textured crochet, but once I learned that I could sculpt with crochet, which I learned through the art of amigurumi, it opened a whole new world to me because suddenly I understood it in a completely different way. The designing process has come to be my favorite part of crocheting because that's where I get to actually create. My husband says crocheting is like magic, which I'm rather fond of him saying in all honesty, but for me the magic happens when I figure out how to transform an idea in my head into a unique, handmade piece of art that I'm proud to share with the world."

You can find a selection of her patterns at as well as on Ravelry and Craftsy. Join Connie in one of crochet classes at Yarn Matters today to learn one of her original designs along with handy tips and tricks to help take your crocheting to the next level!
