CGOA Local Chapters

Crochet Guild of America Local Chapters

Local chapters provide an opportunity for crocheters to get together with others in their area who share their love of crochet. Chapter meetings are an opportunity for showing works in progress, for sharing information about local yarn and supply sources, for workshops devoted to the mastery of new techniques. Chapters may sponsor classes in their community to teach crochet to young and old alike; may contribute crocheted afghans and articles of clothing to local and/or national charities; and participate in local craft fairs and exhibits.
