2015 CGOA Design Competition Winners!

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

The 2015 CGOA Design Competition was held last week at the Knit & Crochet Show (the conference for CGOA and TKGA members) at the Town & Country Resort & Conference Center in San Diego, CA.

There were many hands helping in the design competition this year. I want to personally thank my co-chair, Bobbie Matela, our judging manager, Karen McKenna, the many helping hands at the conference, including Edith Smith, Diane Miller and many, many more, as well as everyone who helped “man the booth” on the show floor (there are too many of you to list)! We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
