Q & A with Sue Kopkind
I joined Womancraft because there were limited avenues to sell fiber items. I started out just making log cabin quilt pins. I still make a few country charm quilt pins.
What were some of the first pieces you made as a member?
Soon after I joined I went to a class to make crazy quilt vests and they were an instant success at Womancraft. I think I made over 750 vests but then they lost their appeal.I have always made tote bags, sweatshirts.
Do you make any of these pieces today?
Along the way I went to a class to make the coiled Bali bowls probably around 2005. I have refined my procedure for making them and now that is what I sell the most.
Any favorite memories or stories?
I have always considered Karen Graves as my unofficial mentor both in what I make and my display skills. When I was Coordinator for WomanCraft, Karen was Display Chair. I used to come in on Thursdays and help her with displays.
I've had many rewarding experiences through Womancraft and enjoy the comradeship.
