About US

Lyn’s Crafts started in 2012 as a way for Marilyn to occupy her time after having moved from the Philippines to US. We first started importing Abaca bags (native, hand made bags, made from plant fibers), to sell at craft fairs along with Lyn’s hand made crochet items.
Soon we began importing yarn from Indonesia and crochet thread from the Philippines and selling them online. We quickly realized that selling yarns, thread, accessories and Lyn’s crochet patterns online was much more lucrative then traveling to craft fairs.
Today, Lyn’s Crafts is a small but growing business that imports high quality, hard to find, yarns and crochet threads, for use in knitting and crochet projects. We have established relationships with distributors that allows us to import their products at price points that allow us to pass the savings on to you.
In addition to allowing us to expand our product offerings we are also able to share their free crochet patterns on our website. Our arrangements with our distributors allows us access to their entire collection of patterns. Our pattern library is updated weekly with new free patterns for you use.
In the last few years we have updated our website to make sure it is fast, safe and secure, as well as expanded our product offerings to include brands such as Alize, Daila, Patons, and others.
We strive to continue to offer great products, fast service and a great customer experience while shopping on our site.
