Canada is now suggesting/recommending having a mask to help prevent you from transmitting the virus when your 6 foot/2 metre personal space cannot be maintained.  They are not not a replacement for personal space or frequent hand washing!  

In case you want to try making a cloth mask ... let's look at some 100% cotton fabrics in stock!  First up... Cats!  These are the newest ones that came in the first week of March. 

Please note: Mrs P's Amherst does not have elastic. :)

Welcome to Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc...
Covid-19 era!

Currently, I am more active on Facebook and can be found under

Today, I wanted to post a lot of pictures and this is an easier platform to do that on.  (There are a lot that follow at the end of the post.)

We have a great selection of batiks in from Island Batik!  A batik is a tightly woven cotton.  If you are sewing with batiks, use a fresh sharp needle!  Besides being closely woven, there was a lot of dyes and wax used in their process to achieve those great colours!   If marking a batik for quilting, or other reason, check your mark can be removed! 

They feel 'thinner' than a regular quilting cotton but that is because they more threads per area as the individual threads are finer.  Unfortunately,  hand quilters are unable to quilt easily through a batik but it can be done!  You need lots of sharp needles.  :) 

You can email myself  (Beth) directly at to order anything on this page or for other enquiries.  First come, first serve.  

We rip these batiks so only Fat Quarters (FQ's), 1/2 
metres and metres or larger can be ordered per bolt.

 Prices are FQ's= $5 each 
1/2 metres are $8.25 each and

Once you decide on a selection, I will invoice you and we will decide a pick up time from the shop for you. Shipping is also available via Canada Post.

Thank you for your support! Respect the 2 metre distance rule and #FlattenTheCurve!

Star Spangled in Blue...

Star Spangled in Blue...
or Mrs P's is trying something New!...

This pattern booklet is designed as a Block of the Month... that you do at your own pace!  

This booklet lays out how to make the quilt in 12 blocks of time (or months).  You will be your own task master! All 12 blocks and border patterns are sent in the easy to use booklet.  

The pattern is paper pieced and makes a 64x64 inch quilt.  The pattern is designed by Carolyn Culling McCormick

Currently, we do not have a fabric kit for the booklet- you will be only buying the booklet/pattern.  We cannot ship for free to the States- shipping would be $11.00 and can be billed later if you wish a pattern.  

The booklet is now available in the shop or to order from Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc on line for $39.95 plus applicable taxes...and the best part- there is no shipping on the booklet within Canada!
