"From July 23 through the 28th of July, the atmosphere in Manchester,
NH definitely kicked up a notch when crocheters from around the country – and
the world (Canada and Austrailia, most notably) – rolled into town for the 2014
CGOA National Chain Link Conference,". This was an extra special years since CGOA celebrated its 20th anniversary. What a rewarding, learning – and
pleasantly exhausting – experience." The fun starts whenever we all get
With a record-breaking number of crocheters (more than at any previous Chain
Link Conference - yes more than 2010), it is no small wonder that scores of classes sold out in early
registration. New activities, a great retail market, multiple crochet author
book signings, award announcements and sparkling fashion shows contributed to
the event's success.
Crocheters selected classes taught by their favorite crochet teachers and we were treated to a Yarn Bombing by local Manchester resident and avid crocheter Jennifer Ryan. Hundreds of swatches were mailed in and brought to conference for Jennifer and her team to assemble and place throughout the hotel lobby and outside as well. Walking up to the hotel you knew that there was something happening in the hotel!
