  1. I am still waiting for the manual...it has been since the Labor Day weekend. I am finding the lack of communication is really pathetic. Did you have any issues with communication? I think this program has taken off faster than they hoped it would and do not have enough people to help with getting them registered, passwords to the web site, and manuals to the participants.

  2. I am just starting the certification process. I cannot comment on whether it has helped. Actually, I am still waiting for my manual to get started. I was curious if anyone else was doing the certification program or have done it. I don't think it would make a difference to be certified or not to teach crochet. I am basically doing it so I can work at Michael's and eventually may want to expand upon that.

  3. Hello Steph!


    You can actually teach while going through the program. You don't have to be certified just yet, but you do have to be enrolled in the program. Here is a link for more information. http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/Discover.html


    It will take some work on your end to get the people signed up, but once you get them, I'm sure it will grow like wild fire. You get 90% of the class fee from each student as payment. You will also get paid an hourly wage, depends on your manager, for doing demonstrations, project boards, etc. However, this is where you get what you put into it and your students signed up by the demonstrations and promoting of the classes. You can easily earn your certification fee back from teaching.


    I finally got a sign up today for a class, which will be held on October 1. Today was my third day of demonstrating in a week and I finally got a student. I have others interested but did not commit just yet.


    Let me know if you have any other questions.

  4. Hello All!


    My name is Hope and I have been a member forever. I just love this group. I am 40, I have three girls ages 19, 11, and 9. I celebrated my 20th anniversary this year.


    • I would love anything made by others, especially dishcloths. - Rec'd 2 dishcloths, 1 dish scrubber, angel pin, bookmark all from one FGM... you rock!
    • Patterns for "sexy" crochet items, especially g-strings... I think there is a market for them...
    • The Last Supper filet crochet pattern.
    • Patterns for shirts, tank tops, bathing suits, head bands, book marks, etc.
    • Entrelac technique information.
    • The Crochet Stitch Bible or any other crochet stitch reference book.

    Thanks for looking.

  5. Teri,


    You are the only response so far. I know there are a lot of Kentucky crocheters here on this list, but no one has replied.


    I am open to getting a group together. Lexington is about one hour away. I used to work in Lexington and then transferred to Louisville. Lexington is so beautiful.


    We could do a "traveling" group. Where we can meet at different members homes each month. What do you think?

  6. Hello All!


    I have been a member of Crochetville since 2005. I mainly lurk, sorry about that.


    I recently rejoined CGOA and noticed there are no Kentucky Chapters. Would anyone be interested in forming a CGOA chapter in the Louisville or Lexington area? I would be interested in getting it started if I can have a commitment of members. You do not need to be a member of CGOA in order to be a chapter member. What do you Kentucky crocheters say?
