My condolences to Viv's family. Thank you Karen for sharing with us. Viv's memory will certainly live on in my home especially at Christmas, I have so many of her stitchery's and patterns. Love to you Karen. xxx


Oh Karen, that's such sad news for everyone who loved Viv and those of us who didn't know her but appreciated her talent and the wonderful happy simplicity of her designs. This comment comes with a big hug for you, Karen.


Such sad news, Karen. May she rest peacefully.
My heart goes out to her family and her family.


Such sad news. She will be at peace at last. A very lovely and talented lady who will be missed dearly by family & friends and the quilting community. Her memories will live on through all her beautiful designs. Condolences to her family & closest friends.


RIP Viv ,sending you big hugs Karen.xx


Oh Karen - such a gentle soul- Viv will be missed greatly! My condolences to her family and thank you for letting us know. I will remember my time spent in Viv's classes fondly - she was so giving of her time and such fun to be around. Live and appreciate every day!


I took a class with Viv about 5 years ago and she was wonderful. She will be sadly missed by all.

Very sad. xxoo


So sorry to hear this sad news. A talented lady who will be missed by her family and the many who knew her both directly and indirectly through her stitching life. Thanks Karen for keeping us informed. X


So sad. Viv was a treasure and I will think of her every time I look at the quilt I made in her class.


Thank you Karen for sharing the last few weeks of Viv's beautiful, creative life. Today's sad news brings tears to my eyes, and although I never met Viv, I treasure her patterns and the wonderful contribution she has made to the creative world. I hope that the many happy memories you have will help you with the loss of a dear friend. My condolences to her family.


Such heartbreaking news - think we were all hoping for a miracle. I was very fortunate to have done many classes with her over the years and counted her as a friend and a very special person in my life, whom I shall miss immensely. She was a very talented designer, but with it just a lovely person. Thinking of you Karen and her family xx
