March is National Crochet Month

 

March 16-22, 1998 was declared National Crochet Week by CGOA. Pam Oddi was President of our organization at the time. A flyer was included in the Chain Link newsletter with ideas for all members on ways to celebrate crochet during the week.

In 1999, Pam designed a bookmark with the design, "I heart Crochet” in filet crochet. The copyright-free pattern instructions were included in the Chain Link newsletter for several years for all members, and American School of Needlework helped spread the word bout National Crochet Week and CGOA by distributing a copy of the bookmark pattern to all who ordered from their latest catalog.

In March 2000, with so much to celebrate, National Crochet Week became National Crochet Month!
