The Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) is an association to encourage crocheting, based in Zanesville, Ohio, United States. It was founded by Gwen Blakley Kinsler in 1994 and had 2,674 members as of 2009 in the United States and abroad.

The guild's purpose is to "educate the public about crochet, provide education and networking opportunities, and set a national standard for the quality, art and skill of crochet through creative endeavors."

As of 2010 there were more than 3,000 members, plus over 80 local chapters and two online chapters affiliated with the Crochet Guild of America. Members interact through the CGOA blog and at annual CGOA conferences - called Chain Link events.
