2015 CGOA Member Design Competition

Submission Date for entries: April 1, 2015

Message from the BOARD

Thanks so much for your interest in our event. This year’s competition will be held in San Diego.  We are in the process of a little restructuring so please check back as more details will follow.

Susan Lowman, Bobbie Matela CGOA 2015 Design Competition Committee Co-Chairs


  • Competition is open to all Crochet Guild of America members in good standing, including those overseas, at all membership levels, excluding the judges. International entries are welcome.
  • Entries must be primarily crocheted; other fiber, needle and crafting arts may be incorporated in your design, but the overall impression must be crochet. Any materials may be used.
  • Entries must be original designs that have not been previously entered in this competition, previously published in any print or electronic media, or otherwise publicly available before the date of competition. There should be no possibility that any of the judges can see or recognize your design.
  • Entries do not have to be newly or recently crocheted, as long as they are completely your own designs. Working from someone else’s published pattern and changing a few things does not make it original!
