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.

Next Meeting

Our next chapter meeting will be our Holiday Party and Gift Exchange on Saturday, December 14, 2019, from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Rolling Meadows Library. Please note we are starting an hour early (at 12:30 pm) with our holiday party.  Members should bring appetizers and desserts to share. Chapter board members will provide a sandwich tray. To participate in our gift exchange, bring a wrapped anonymous handmade crocheted gift, cost of materials $10-$15. You may include other items with the crocheted gift if you like (for example, a travel mug + cup cozy, basket + sweets, etc.)
