Due to COVID-19, we are not currently having in-person chapter meetings. We do have monthly Zoom meetings for our members. Our next Zoom will be Saturday May 8, 2021. Stay safe, stay home, and happy crocheting.
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.
