Delma Myers, CGOA, Chair of the Crochet Hall of Fame Committee
Crochetville is very proud to have Delma Myers, CGOA Board Member and Chair of the Crochet Hall of Fame Committee, with us today, March 31, as one of the featured designers on our 2015 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo).
Delma has been crocheting for over 50 years. She also enjoys knitting, quilting, embroidery, and needlepoint, but crocheting is her favorite by far. She says, “I consider it ‘my therapy’ for coping with life’s difficult moments. I always have a take-along project with me for those moments waiting in line, at the doctor’s or dentist’s office, and at red lights. I have affectionately been called the “bag lady.”
Two of Delma’s Designs:
Shadow Play Throw, published in Crochet! magazine, March 2010
Double Take Pillow, published by Red Heart Yarns
Why She’s a Member of CGOA:
It keeps me connected to other crocheters and the conferences have allowed the opportunity to broaden my crochet skills. The friends I have made through CGOA are a definite plus in my life.
CGOA Conference Story:
On my way to a conference in Manchester, NH, I had an airplane change layover in Detroit. I, of course, was sitting at my gate crocheting when a voice said, “You must be going to Chain Link.” The speaker was going there also and we became instant friends. If not for my crocheting, we probably would not have started talking. Crochet is a conversation starter.
Why She’s Serving on the Board of Directors:
As a founding member of CGOA, I have received so much that I feel it’s important for me to give back to the Guild. I hope to help CGOA get the word out to the “average crocheter” that membership is a positive in their life and that CGOA is not just for designers or those who work in the industry.
Visit CGOA Now!—The CGOA Blog:
Please pay a visit to CGOA Now!, the Crochet Guild of America’s blog. For each of the next seven days, one of the seven board members will write a very special post about the organization and/or crochet. We hope you’ll get to know more about the organization and that you’ll consider becoming a member.
Members get fabulous discounts at the annual conference, which will be held this year from July 22-25 in the beautiful San Diego, California at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center.

Please sign me up for give away Thanks
I would like to buy the pattern for Shadow Play Throw. I went to the Crochet! website but they don’t have the magazine from March 2010. Can you provide any guidance on where I can obtain this pattern please?
Anne, if you subscribe to the magazine, you’ll have access to a downloadable version of that issue, plus many, many more back issues. If you don’t want to subscribe, you’d have to contact the magazine or Annie’s to see if they have a way for you to buy just that issue. Or you could watch eBay to see if anyone is selling a used print version there. (Digital issues can’t be sold on eBay due to copyright issues.)
