CGOA Masters Programs
CGOA Masters offers currently two programs, Fundamentals of Crochet and Advanced Stitches & Techniques, which may be done in either order. With the multiple programs available, the Masters Committee strongly recommends that participants in a program fully complete one—including submitting the portfolio for review, correcting any errors and receiving the certificate—before submitting another portfolio for a different curriculum. There is some overlap between the curriculums, but we are finding that it is better to complete one program before starting another.
Both programs are open to members and non-members.
