Welcome Crocheters!

Welcome to the Northern Illinois Chapter of the Crochet Guild of America.   We are a local crochet group in northwest suburban Chicago.  If you love crochet and want to learn more, come join us!

We are the premiere (first-ever) local chapter of the national organization, the Crochet Guild of America. We encourage all our members to join CGOA, and to attend the annual CGOA crochet conference.

NICGOA won first place in the national CGOA Chapter Challenge for 2021.   Twenty-one of our members crocheted 5,629 hearts that we donated to more than 15 charities.  View slideshow.
