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 on Saturday, May 11, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Rolling Meadows Library. Mary Hannon and Diane Passarelli will teach Beginning Tunisian crochet, the Tunisian Simple Stitch. What you need to know about our meetings.
