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, 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.
