Welcome to the Northern Illinois Chapter of the Crochet Guild of America.   We are a local crochet group that meets 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.

Our next meeting is Saturday, November 3rd, 1:30 to 4:30 pm, at the Rolling Meadows Library.   We will have a Fashion Show for our members to wear the sweater that they crocheted this year.   We will also have our annual Pattern Exchange, and Stitch of the Month.
