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 chapter meeting will be on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Rolling Meadows Library. Our program will be Ergonomics and Hand Health. Mary Jo Burke will lead discussion about Hand Health, including exercises for our hands, and ergonomic crochet hooks and other tools. We will also hold our annual Pattern Exchange – bring original patterns (no photocopies). For example, a book, magazine or leaflet that you purchased, or a free pattern leaflet from a store.
