Crackpot All-Together Week

by Nancy

It’s recently come up in several conversations with other Crackpots that we don’t yet have a plan for any crackpotty activity/sewing day during All-Together Week. While a lack of planning is generally a good crackpotty thing, occasional planning can be helpful too. So, what thoughts do Crackpots have? Any things you want/need to do that would be more fun in the presence of other Crackpots? Do we want to make a charity quilt or bring our own things to work on? One suggestion which has been made is to do a Crackpot workshop on applique – how to do it, what the various methods are, etc. I plan to bring this unfinished object, which needs to be quilted because I have found that I am much more productive in quilting on Marty’s machine than on my own. I think this is due in equal parts to her superior machine and to the lack of people/housework which pull me away from quilting when I am at her machine. But I don’t necessarily need to do my quilting during the Crackpot Quilting Day if there are more interesting activities happening. Ok, Crackpots, discuss.

    Wow! That really is a UFO – it dates back to 2009! It’s really cute. I love “Card Trick”! How big is it? Is it intended as a baby/kid quilt? And what have you decided, if anything, about s second border and binding?
    As for ATW, I vote for the appliqué workshop since I’m the one who suggested it, but I’m open to other Crackpotty ideas.

    I am open to anything, too. A combo applique workshop and UFO time? Somebody also asked earlier about a zipper workshop. The 5-minute foolproof (mostly) zipper insertion?

    I’d love a zipper workshop, since I’m planning to try some garment-sewing in the (near, not-so-near, whatever…) future.

    I would definitely like a zipper workshop! I have been trying to read directions and watch YouTube videos and it is still entirely a mystery to me. I could take or leave an applique workshop. I’m trying to think of what I’m going to bring for my UFO this year – possibly the string-pieced thing to get suggestions and recommendations.
