I was shocked to find this in my mailbox today - the catalogue of "honourees" for the 2015 Hoffman Challenge. So soon!!  Melissa Ratzlaff, who curated the challenge, did a stellar job of getting the catalogue together and printed so quickly. I expect she burned through a lot of midnight oil.
It's very cool to see my name there, and also "Amherst, N.S.", BUT...what you don't that of only 5 Canadian quilts chosen to travel with the show, at least 2 (and possibly 3) of the makers purchased their challenge fabrics at Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium, Amherst's local quilt shop. That's pretty mind-boggling and shows what a presence Mrs. P. has established...right here in little ol' Amherst.
Amherst, you are represented! *-)


  1. Well done, Amherst! Quite a feather in your town cap.

  2. That catalogue will be a wonderful keepsake. Congratulations! You are lucky to have such a great quilt shop in your town.
