CGOA Chain Link Conference 2018

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

The 2018 CGOA Chain Link Conference is fast approaching and I can’t wait! This year will be the fifth conference I have attended since I joined CGOA five years ago. What keeps me coming back year after year…the classes, the inspiration, the friendship possibilities, and the always-spectacular marketplace. A huge bonus…the location of this years’ conference – Portland, OR.

Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate/expert crocheter…extrovert or introvert…you will find the conference to be a great experience.

CLASSES ARE VARIED in experience levels and interests…from learning new crochet techniques (too many classes to mention)…to Simplifying Symbol Crochet or Math for Crocheters…from Customizing your Crochet or Beading Three Ways…to Drop Spindle or Home Dyeing Safe and Simple. For a quick class listing, which includes the experience level, visit:

When not in classes, why not check out the MARKETPLACE? For attendees, there is a preview on Thursday evening so you can check it out before it opens to the public. The Marketplace is open to everyone Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm/5 pm. Plenty of time to get in some shopping between visiting with friends, attending classes, and checking out the area.

DESIGN COMPETITION is open to all CGOA Members. Do you have a project you designed that you would like to enter? This year there are 6 categories…Fashion, Accessories, Home Décor & Afghans, Artistic Expression, and Thread Crochet. The deadline is fast approaching…June 30, so don’t delay if you would like to enter:

There is so much more I could talk about regarding this years’ conference, however, why not check out the complete schedule of events at:

One last item to mention…beautiful PORTLAND, OR that sits on the Columbia and Willamette rivers with the backdrop of the amazing Mount Hood.  There are so many sites and possibilities...from Powell's City of Books to Lan Su Chinese Garden, from the Oregon Zoo to Voodoo Doughnut, and much more.

See you in Portland, OR
