Do you love to crochet? Can’t get enough? Do you say, “Just one more row” even though your eyes are bleary and it’s way past your bedtime? Shout about your love of crochet from the rooftops during the annual month-long celebration of crochet during March.
Sponsored by the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) National Crochet Week was started back in 1999 as a promotional effort to celebrate our beloved craft and to let others know about the guild. Its popularity has grown exponentially and now it is a whole month long and it is called National Crochet “Month.” Now many other associated groups have jumped on the bandwagon and have found creative ways to celebrate and have fun with other crocheters. Most notably is the Northern IL chapter of CGOA which holds its Annual Crochet Buffet each year during this festive month. Over at Ravelry, month long crochet-centric party carries on all month:
There’s so much to celebrate!
How will you celebrate National Crochet Month? The best gift you can give is to teach a child to crochet. Treat yourself and buy a new crochet accessory. Give a crocheted gift to a friend. There are so many ways to say, “I love crochet” during March and every day of the year!
