Stitches Midwest part 3

Our booth neighbor at Stitches Midwest was CGOA. The Crochet Guild of America is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to preserving and advancing the art of crochet. The main purpose of the Crochet Guild of America is to educate the public about crochet, provide education and networking opportunities, and set a national standard for the quality, art and skill of crochet through creative endeavors. If you're not a member, check out their site for all the benefits of joining.

Volunteers from the Northern Illinois chapter staffed the booth including founding member, Gwen Blakley Kinsler pictured below. You can read more about the show at Gwen's blog Crochet Queen Royal Ramblings Thank you for all of your help!

Penny Sitler and Karen Kinese, part of our management team.
I just love these girls!

Each year our board of director members create a special design to be 
compiled into a book, "Across the Board", which new members receive
when joining. Penny and I are each wearing a beautiful necklace created
by Guild VP, Cari Clement.

Here is the cover of the 2012 Across the Board book of crochet designs!

In my next post I'll share some pictures of special friends I got to see at the show!
