Crazy quilting is a large part of our lives; it is a means of creative expression through its combination of many textile techniques. As such, it is a unique creature, and consequently there are very few venues for crazy quilts to be displayed and competently judged in quilt competitions. The quilt world currently revolves around the precision of standard "sane" quilting and piecing along with machine quilting, which is not entirely applicable to our quilts.

To that end, I have created a new group, CQ Promoters, (a Yahoo group) with the goal of bringing crazy quilting into the mainstream consciousness of the quilting world. We are in the midst of developing our member base and have had well known artists and business women such as Allison Aller, Cindy Brick, Cindy Thury-Smith, Victoria Adams Brown, Nancy Kirk (the list goes on) join in our efforts. Other well known talents such as Sharon Boggon, Carole Samples and Barbara Blankenship hope to join in the near future. The final touches are being completed on the mission statement, researching appropriate business structures, reviewing organization names and organizing our "community" to bring these goals to fruition. Such tasks as locating sponsors for quilt shows, establishing judging standards for crazy quilting, website development and digital archives are in the beginning stages of development for this international endeavor. We know this will need to be a "grass roots" effort combined with our known artists and business owners to achieve the reality of recognition for the art of crazy quilting. If you are interested in participating in this journey, we would love to have you join us. I can be contacted at the following email address: cqpromoters-owner@yahoogroups.com
