Crochet Guild of America
Good Morning Everyone,
Happy sunny warming up Sunday!
As most of you know, I am a member of the Crochet Guild of America, our goal is to keep crochet alive and well. We teach others to crochet, do charity work, such as contributing crochet items for cancer care, Warm up America, Preemie Caps and Blankets, etc. In addition to charity work, guild and chapter activities are many and varied. There are the yearly conferences, special workshops, parties for special occasions, fashion shows, crochet contests etc.
Many of our Chapters have local charities to which they contribute on a regular basis.
My chapter, The Happily Hooked on Crochet group, which meets in Danbury Hospital, Danbury, CT, is a very active group in charitable donations. We donate hundreds of Chemo Caps, and baby items to Danbury Hospital, and Hats, Scarves and Gloves to the Salvation Army each year.
One of our members, Candy, has been trying to start a chapter closer to her home, in Dutchess County, NY. Candy had fliers printed and posted them in local yarn shops, and around town. She asked the Barnes and Noble in Poughkeepsie, NY, if she could hold meetings there. Candy invited me to attend, to help her try to get this new chapter started. We met on Thursday, and had a wonderful time. I hope that some of you who live in the area will join us. As of right now, the group plans to meet on the third Thursday of every month from 2 - 4.
