Let it be known that after many years of thinking about it, yep I joined the CGOA. I am a member for the next two years, I am hoping to take advantage of it's benefits and see what comes out of it. I have been a member of the Men Who Crochet Chapter that Meets in Oakland for some time now. I have to say that I have enjoyed being a part of the chapter. They have some advance certifications and some programs that I will eventually get into. Is it worth it? I don't know yet, I will tell you in a year, I have downloaded a list of member discounts and benefits and I will see how I can use them, but more than discounts is what can I learn. I am hoping to becom a better Tapestry Crochet Artisan. Thanks for stopping by.
