Do you love to take crochet classes and learn new crochet techniques? Do you enjoy meeting people who have the same love of crochet as you? Do you live close to Manchester, NH (or Reno, NV) or have the means and ability to travel to one of these cities? Then the CGOA Conference is for you!!! You’ll meet many designers, yarn manufacturer representatives, publishers and crochet enthusiasts at the conference. You will be able to take crochet (and knitting) classes that will push your crochet knowledge and skills to the next level! It’s a little slice of “crochet heaven” here on earth!!!
In addition to the crochet and knitting classes at the conference, there is a CGOA dinner & fashion show, shopping floor (with yarn, patterns, tools etc), design contest, dance party, designer meet & greet (with the editors in attendance), Professional Development Day, CGOA Masters Program, book signings and more!
There will be 2 CGOA Conferences this year: one in Manchester, NH at the end of June and another in Reno, NV in the middle of September.
I will be teaching 6 classes at each of the conferences this year.
These are the classes I’ll be teaching in Manchester:
Simplifying Symbol Crochet, “Faux” Tatting Crochet Necklace, Beginning Bruges Lace, Intermediate Bruges Lace, Tatting the Old-Fashioned Way (sold out!) and Crochet Pattern Writing 101.
These are the classes I’ll be teaching in Reno:
Beginning Filet Crochet, Intermediate Filet Crochet, Playful Polish Star, Simplifying Symbol Crochet, Intermeshing 101 and Reading & Understanding Crochet Patterns.
The other crochet teachers at the NH conference are Vashti Braha, Lily Chin, Joan Davis, Darla Fanton, Margaret Hubert, Karen Klemp, Marty Miller, Carol Ventura and Karen Whooley. They will be teaching some fantastic crochet classes, too! Congratulations to Vashti Braha, whose 4 classes are sold out already!!!!! You must be doing something right, Vashti! That makes me want to take one of your classes soon (when I’m not teaching classes, too).

The conference is really a blast! If you decide to attend, you won’t regret it! And please introduce yourself to me at the conference. I’d love to meet you in one of my classes or at the conference in general!!!
