2017 Chapter Challenge is Here!

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

CGOA is bringing back the chapter challenge. The challenge is open to all Chapters and will run from Jan 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017. We are working with Warm Up America on this challenge.

The Challenge:

1.  Create as many 7" x 9" rectangles as you choose for Lapghans for Warm Up America! (This is their size requirement.) Contest ends June 30th.

2.  Visit the "Warm Up America" website at www.WarmUpAmerica.org for details on preferred lapghan sizes and free crochet patterns your chapter can use.

3.  When your Chapter is finished, please count and double count all your rectangles and then make a sign.  Include the Chapter name (as per CGOA website) and the total number of rectangles made.  Next take a picture of the sign - hopefully with some Chapter Members holding it - and email to Karen McKenna CGOAChapters@gmail.com by July 1st.  Please include the number of CGOA members in your Chapter as winners are based on a ratio of members to number of rectangles made, this way smaller chapters can compete with larger chapters.  

Please Note: Do not send any finished rectangles to Karen. You can put the squares together as lapghans for donation, or donate the squares to your favorite local charity. 

4.  Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 28th in the Market Place at the Chain Link Conference in Chicago!

  1. Do the rectangle donations need to be made by CGOA members or just members of a CGOA guild?
