About the CrazyQuilt Mailing List This mailing list is provided by Beth Ober of Quiltropolis and was conceived by Dawn Smith.
The topic of this list is Crazy Quilting, which is a type of needlework that was popular in the Victorian era and has been gaining in popularity since a resurgence of the craft in the 70's. Crazy Quilting consists of irregularly shaped patches of fabric which are sewn to a backing fabric. The patches are usually embellished with embroidery or trims. Topics for discussion include, but are not limited to: crazy patching, antique quilts, members projects, hand embroidery, machine embroidery, other embellishments (like lace, beads, buttons and ribbons), classes, books, fabrics, ornaments, wallhangings and many others.To join CrazyQuilt you can subscribe online at http://quiltropolis.com/NewMailinglists.htm.
