A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour

  • Save

Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.

Today’s Posts: Amy Shelton | Kirsten Holloway | Sparkle Studio | Daily Giveaway

Want to Chat about the Tour?

Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

  1. Congratulations on Sparkle Studio!
    It sounds like a great place.
    I hope to get to Huntsville now to take a class and check it out!

  2. Not a member of CGOA. Funds are tight so the thing that would entice me to join is if it were free or an very inexpensive club.

    Reply
  3. I participate in the Prayer shawl ministry at my church. I enjoy spending time learning and growing my craft with this wonderful group of ladies!

    Reply
  4. I’ve recently tried to join CGOA, but I can’t get my application to go through. I’m not sure if it’s a problem with the website or my browser, but it would help if online joining were easier.

    Reply
  5. I attend a local crochet group, love it! We all help each other when we need to learn something or don’t understand a pattern or stitch. We also did a huge charity project last year where we made and donated over 250 blankets to the local nursing homes. I just think of that group as my friends and my night out. I never miss it if I can help it.

  6. I am a CGOA member, but don’t participate in local groups — while I don’t mind hanging out in groups, they need to be conveniently located and on the right days and times and I haven’t found any that fit my preferences where I live now (In TX, I hung out with a mixed knitting/crocheting group occasionally) For a while I went to a geeky craft night in Seattle at a great coffeehouse, but parking became too unreliably hard to find to justify going down there. Trapped in suburbia (north of Seattle), so parking/transportation availability influences way too much of what we actually do and don’t do socially.

  7. “Are you a member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) or do you participate in any local crochet groups? If so, what do you enjoy about being a member of a group, and if not, what would make it more enticing for you to join a group?”

    No, I am not! I am assuming CGOA is an organization in the United States? I am in Canada so I don’t know if it’s possible for me to join. At the moment I do not participate in any local crochet group because I am still quite new to it. I think having an opportunity to network with others would entice me to join one but I am too self conscious of my beginner’s work. Maybe in the future. 🙂

  8. Yes, I am a member of CGOA, as well as a member (but infrequent attendee) of my local chapter. I love CGOA for its support in my seeking a crochet career! My local group is a comfortable place to hang out with like-minded yarn/thread fans.

    Reply
  9. I am currently not a member of CGOA, but I’m hoping to become a member soon. I do not participate in any crochet groups. The nearest one I’ve been able to find is 30-45 minutes away and it is not practical to go every week. I would love to find a group closer to home.

    Reply
    • I am not a member of CGOA. I do not participate in any dedicated crochet groups, but go to several multidisciplinary fiber gatherings.

      Reply
  10. I’m not a member of CGOA. I belonged to a crochet that made prayer shawls. I’ve moved and haven’t found any crochet groups in my area, but hope to at some point.

    Reply
  11. Ooh, I love those booklets, especially the flower one. I would love to use it for FreeForm crochet. No, I am not a member of CGOA. I don’t know what would entice me to join. Years ago I had a crochet group, with just three members. I enjoyed learning new things and seeing what others were working on. Eventually it disbanded as interests changed. Ravelry keeps me busy and connected to an international crochet community.

    Reply
  12. I have been a member of CGOA for over 13 years but do not have a local chapter in my area. I have been to the CGOA Chain Link Conference several times, and have taken many fantastic classes and met many wonderful people.

    Reply
  13. I’m not yet a member but hope to join. There are no local craft groups in my area so I’m planning on starting one. 🙂

    Reply
  14. I am a proud member of CGOA and our local crochet guild, Crochet Twin Cities! I’ve learned so many new things being a part of these groups, as well as making great friends.

    Reply
  15. My go to small gift is usually a cowl – there are so many patterns that take 1 skein or less and use a large hook so can be finished very quickly.

    Reply
  16. My favorite go to items for small gifts are flowers and bookmarks. I am always crocheting flowers and leaves then I can glue or sew them to hair clips, or make broaches, decorate gift boxes and I make flower magnets for my daughter in law, she is a teacher and they come in handy in her classroom. Bookmarks are always a welcome gift. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.

    Reply
  17. Well I like to crochet flowers – I start with a circle and just “wing it”. I also like to crochet bracelets with yarn, ribbon, beads, buttons, etc. Again, I just kind of “wing it”!

    Reply
    • I meant to add that these books look great, and seem to have lots of neat ideas to try and add to my repertoire. 🙂

      Reply
  18. Cup cozies are my go-to small gift. They can be whipped up quickly and decorated in countless ways including using flowers. Plus, most everyone drinks coffee, tea or cocoa so it’s something everyone can use.

    Reply
  19. I like to make flowers to add to a hat/scarf/stole. I love making a special bulliion heart to remember a loss of a friend/family member.

    Reply
  20. I usually make a headband or flowers. Looks like some interesting books. It would be amazing to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Reply
  21. I have patterns for small crochet animals that I use on packages for baby showers and crochet flowers that I use on birthday and bridal shower packages. I use the crochet items instead of bows. Something for them to keep. Bows are only going to be tossed away. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Reply
  22. I mostly just do various dishcloths/trivets as gifts…since they tend to take at least one evening to complete, not sure they count as “small”… 😉

    Reply
  23. My go-to gift (for new babies or friends with a whimsical streak going through a rough time) is a crocheted monkey, but I wouldn’t call it a quick project! It’s at least 2 full days of work to crochet all the pieces and sew them together. I’ve been getting some instant gratification the past couple weeks making little kerchiefs from shawl patterns that I wanted to try out, and that might become a go-to for me.
