Become a Certified Crochet Instructor
When crochet is your passion, at some point you’ll want to share that passion with someone else. It only took about six months for me to share crochet with everyone I saw (whether they wanted to hear it or not). I first taught one of my good friends who still enjoys crochet to this day. I didn’t have all the answers back then (and still probably don’t) but I knew just enough to get her hooked.
That first crochet lesson made me realize that teaching was my jam. Now several years after teaching crochet on my YouTube channel, I came upon the Craft Yarn Council’s Certified Instructors Program and that is our topic of discussion today. My goal with this interview was to introduce you to this program and to help you determine if the CYC Certified Instructor Program (CIP) is right for you. Jenny talks a lot about the program details, timeline and costs while Edie speaks about the assignments and what the Master Instructor looks for while grading.
