2019 CGOA Fashion Show

Sunday, July 21, 2019


Were you able to attend the fashion show at the CGOA Chain Link Conference last week? We had a very full show this year, with 58 items!

 

We didn't have an official video this year, but Lauren Venettozzi recorded most of it and shared the video on Facebook.


All the amazing photos you see in this post were taken by Bonnie Barker of Bonnie Bay Crochet Photography, with the help of her daughter, Becky Bluebush.



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 again, and for all the fabulous prizes. Tamara Kelly and Marly Bird, both with Red Heart, were our MCs.



I'd also like to thank all the amazing crocheters who submitted projects, and all the volunteers who made the show possible. The models are listed in the line up below, and our other volunteers were:


  • Photographer: Bonnie Barker and
  • Garment Manager (and emergency model): Laurinda Reddig
  • Door Monitor: Christine Bitner
  • Timekeepers: Lauren Venettozzi, Julie Marz, and Candace Pisterzi


I hope I haven't forgotten anyone, and I can't wait to see you all again next year!
