Next week I’ll have some fun new posts for you… and my own brain will be filling up with maximum crochet goodness, because I’ll be at the Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester, New Hampshire!
If you’re not familiar with the CGOA, it stands for Crochet Guild of America, of which I am a proud member. This year marks their 20th Anniversary, and my own very first trip to the annual conference! Of course, The Knitting Guild Association will be there as well, and it will be an all around great yarny time.
I’m going to be at the CGOA Fabulous Friday Fun Night, CGOA Banquet on Saturday, and I’m taking several classes/sessions as well: CGOA Get Your Crochet Geek On; Crochet Tips, Tricks and Hints; Going Around in Circles; Color Crochet – PULAD Method; Learn Tunisian Crochet Cables; and Aran Crochet Basic Cables and Traveling Stitches.
I’ll be flying out on Tuesday the 22nd, and returning to Moogly homebase on the following Sunday. It will be a whirlwind of crochet and design and CGOA happiness! And I’ll try to take pics and share everything with you that I can.
And I tell you all this not just to brag, but to get you excited – because the more I learn, the more I can share and incorporate and improve on the free patterns I design here at Moogly!
PLUS… I’m hoping that some of you will be there! If we have a class together, or you spot me in the lounge, or wondering around looking lost… please come say hi! I’d love to meet some Moogly fans and make them friends. I’ll answer to Tamara or Moogly, heh. And I’d love to meet up for dinner, some quiet time in the lounge, or have a drink in the evening while we decompress! I’m staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, so I’ll be looking for traveling buddies to and from the Radisson too!
One great way to stalk me will be through the free Guidebook app that’s been developed for the conference – download it HERE! After you’ve downloaded it, just look for the Knit and Crochet Show conference and link up. I’ve got it downloaded on my Kindle and I’ll have it with me throughout the conference. It’s got all my classes and we can connect that way too!
So if you’re going and want to meet up, feel free to send me an email at [email protected] – I hope to see some of you there! And with any luck I’ll have lots to share with those who weren’t able to join us when I get back.
