Awesome Blogger Award: Best Newsletter! I'm bowled over!

Monday, December 30, 2013

I wasn't going to blog today, thinking many people would be otherwise occupied and too busy to check in. I'm too excited not to now! I just received word that I've been awarded my second Awesome Crochet Blogger Award for "Best Newsletter" from Crochet Concupiscence! I proudly share this award with my co-editor of Talking Crochet eNewsletter, Dora Ohrenstein.

Best Newsletter
Many, many thanks to the amazing Kathryn Vercillo for awarding me this and my first award this month for "Best Guest Posts"! I'm excited about bringing you most exciting guest posts in the New Year.

Talk about "going out in style"! I have just retired from editing the eNewsletter after 3 years on the job! You can read my last e-letter tomorrow. My sincere thanks go out Sara Meyer, Carol Alexander and Libby Butler-Gluck for their attentive assistance to me throughout my tenure as the editor. With confidence, I am turning over the reins to the new co-editor, Brenda Bourg. I wish her the best as she brings her perspective to Talking Crochet!

National Crochet Month: A Fibery Celebration!

Crocheters across the nation have gotten creative in finding ways to celebrate their beloved craft during the month of March for National Crochet Month. Started originally as National Crochet Week by the Crochet Guild of America in 1997,  it has grown and grown and there is so much to celebrate that CGOA changed it to a monthlong event a few years later. Fibery people, CGOA members, and companies large and small are on the bandwagon now to draw attention to all we love about crochet!


What did you do to celebrate? I'm sure we educated many, many of the unenlightened during March ~ but calm down, Ryan...no physical violence allowed; just threaten with a crochet hook!

The Northern IL Chapter of CGOA has wrapped up its celebration  with our annual Crochet Buffet. It is always a feast for the senses and a smorgasbord for the eyes! Thank you to all the chapter members who displayed their beautiful crochet! We also filled the library showcase where we meet with crochet during the month.
