2018 CGOA Fashion Show

Tuesday, July 31, 2018




Were you able to attend the fashion show at the CGOA Chain Link Conference this past weekend? If not, you can watch the whole show on the Crochet Guild of America Facebook page!




The first half of the video shows the keynote speaker, Pauline Turner, who was inducted into the hall of fame this year. She's such a delightful speaker, and I think you will enjoy her presentation very much as well. The fashion show is in the last half of the video.


Below is a list of all the items that were displayed at this year's fashion show. If a pattern or more information about an item is available online, I have added a link to that information.


Many of these patterns are not yet available but will be soon. If you know of any other links that become available or are not included here, please leave a comment and I will add them in.


Special thanks to Red Heart for sponsoring this year's fashion show. Also thanks to all the amazing crocheters who submitted projects, and to all the volunteers who made the show possible. I can't wait to see everyone again next year!
