|The physical location of Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Ltd.|
Proud to be located in Amherst, Nova Scotia
I was invited to talk about my shop, Mrs Pugsley's Emporium or, Mrs P's, at the Cumberland Quilt Guilds' last meeting of this year.
I've never been to a guild meeting before, and I quickly learned, the end of the year ones are the best! There was a lot of socialisation with laughter interspersed with food, yummy desserts, a show and tell and some games.
I won't mention individual names, as I forgot to get their permission to mention them. I would like to profile some of the work of the different guild members later, with their permission.
Guild members brought their work to show the others and their projects were fabulous! Such a variety of different projects on the go. Wonderful talent and each project has the uniqueness that gives it their own 'stamp'. I could only look on in awe.
There were examples of hand quilting, machine stitching, workshop projects, applique, piecing and so on. The home we were at, had the most beautiful primitive quilts. She had them displayed on the wall and kept that warm country feel through her house.
I admit that I really, really like those primitive quilts but, as we discussed with great laughter- our personalities help pick the colours. I'd be afraid of being bored with working with the muted colours but seeing her finished projects, I'm hoping to try someday. I really admire her work and all the others of the guild.
I'd like to thank the guild for inviting Mrs P's to come and explain what the shop hopes to be and the chance to answer some questions, including when the shop may open. (Hoping now for late July/early Aug)

As a thank you for coming, the hostess presented me with a pin cushion. She made it- it's awesome!
