The Karp’s are Downsizing

Posted on

Hello all of my Quilting Friends,

It is with some sadness but great anticipation that I am sending this message. Ed and I are moving to Bedford NH. We anticipate that move to be in Sept. That being said, we are having a QUILT ESTATE YARD SALE on July 25th. 

You can’t believe what I have unearthed in my studio, my linen closet, my dresser etc. that pertains to quilting. We have a plethora of fabric, rulers, books, magazines, sewing machine tables and on and on. I’m embarrassed about the amount but I guess 37 years of quilting, vendors, shows (you know) has proven me a bit of a “collector”.

Please (I beg you) mark your calendars and come to my home in Andover, Ma. I will send a reminder via FB a few days before. We are moving from a 8 room 2200 square ft to 1100 sq, feet. I can’t take much with me but sharing with you will give me some peace.

Because we have no quilt show this year, 20% of the total sale will go to the guild (think of me as the white elephantEmoji). I hope to see you all there. You may be surprised (or not).

Marianne Karp

MVQ Meetings Go Live

Posted on

Liz Swan and I (Cathy Harnisch) have been learning how to create a live virtual meeting. With all the various options for virtual meeting, we decided upon using Youtube Live. Mainly because it’s free.

The following link will get you to our first meeting. Mistakes and all. We will let you know when the next meeting will take place. If you view live, while we are recording, you can ask questions through Youtube chat.

Once a meeting is concluded, the video will be available for viewing for one week. After that week, we will be deleting the videos.

Here’s the video. Liz and I were rolling on the floor with laughter upon watching the video after it was done.

Let us know what you think.

Your Communications Chair,
Cathy Harnisch
