It’s our18th Colonial Christmas Market Dec 5 from 11-4, held outdoors on the grounds of the Jacobus Vanderveer Home & Museum. Along with re-enactors in period dress, festive recorded music, holiday snacks and a virtual house tour, we have a Colonial Marketplace. Our goal is offering a few artisans an opportunity to demonstrate their craft and sell their wares. Our set up is similar to a Farmers Market. We’ll be burning a Yule Log and Lighting the Liberty Tree Dec 4 to kickoff the season. We’d love to have an artisans spinning and explaining your craft as well as participate as a vendor. I look forward to speaking with you. Tiffany Elliott 908-285-2407

The MAFA 2021 Conference Is Going Virtual!

Reps - please share this letter with your guild members so we can get survey results in by October 10th


The MAFA 2021 Conference Is Going Virtual!

Dear MAFA Conference Attendees,

In recent months pandemic numbers in many areas have not improved as much as hoped.  Even though we are planning for a conference to be held next Summer, the feedback we have gotten so far from our members, volunteers, and instructors makes the idea of successfully hosting a large in-person conference seem unlikely and unwise.

So, the MAFA board has decided to plan a new virtual event for 2021 rather than canceling and having no conference next year.  It WILL be different, and the committee is already hard at work on the details. We’re considering it “a glass half full of lemonade” since we hope many more members will be able to attend online.

We plan to keep our original dates, June 24-27, 2021, and to offer four days of lectures, short programs and classes, and some longer one or two day workshops.  We will also have keynote addresses, exhibits, vendors, demos, informal gatherings, and more -- all virtual.  We will start rolling out details after the first of the year and registration will open early-Spring.

We could use your input to make the event fun and meaningful to you, our attendees!  We’re moving ahead quickly with new plans, so please complete our survey by October 10th, either at this link, or click the button below:

Thanks, and stay well!
We look forward to seeing you at MAFA 2021!
