For her first show this year on February 8th and 9th, she will be releasing a new print of Mabry Mill. Here is a preview of Winter's Reverie, Mabry Mill.


Winter’s Reverie, Mabry Mill. Mabry Mill is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway in the proximity of Floyd, VA.


Moss Society News

2020 marks our 33rd year as an organization. This is a tremendous achievement that each and every one of you should take pride in. We are excited to share with you your exclusive members-only membership items for this year.


This beautiful brooch is for the 2020 Adult members and is titled
, A Peaceful Time.


Ever Vigilant is the Junior members pin. We think everyone is going to want one of these, so we are making extras. Did you know that as an Adult Member you have the option to purchase a Junior pin for $20?


This year’s member gift print is heartwarming and appropriately named, Our Lady.


The Adult Members-Only print
, Solace, will be $80.


Across the Pond, the Junior Members-Only print. The print will be $50.


As you can see, being a member really has its perks. The bead for 2020 features one of Pat’s iconic barns. We will publish a picture of it here and in Pat’s weekly newsletter upon receipt of the finished version from our jeweler. The very popular pendant is returning again for 2020, and will share the same image as the bead. As a Choice or Premier member, you may choose either the bead or the pendant. Please note that at this membership level, you may purchase one additional bead or pendant for $62.

We encourage chapter presidents to complete the annual report so that we may release the chapter companion prints to eligible members. To be eligible to receive one of these prints, you must be a current member of the Moss Society and have met the criteria for membership as stated by each chapter’s charter. We look forward to hearing from you!!

Moss Foundation News

First and foremost, the Moss Foundation would like to thank departing President Sandy Moore for her service the past 9 years. Sandy’s gentle guidance and hard work will certainly be missed. A big thank you also goes out to departing Vice President Peggy Goodwin. Peggy has worked with the Moss Society and Foundation in some capacity since its inception. The Foundation would also like to welcome new board member Toni Jernigan. Toni has been a Moss Society member since 1996, and served as the Mossaphile Chapter president.


The 2020 Moss Foundation Mailing return label program is already underway. The Foundation offers its gratitude for the extraordinary success of this program in 2019. Together we raised $3,721.08 from this program. This paid for 3 PBM Endowed Scholarships. Well done! The labels will be out to Society members in March. If you would like more of the previous year’s labels, you may order them by sending a request to, or by calling 800-430-1320. The Foundation office hours are 9-5 Eastern, M-F. There are many images to choose from.


Available Moss Foundation Mailing Labels


Shadows of Spring will be the special print for the 2020 Foundation fundraising. The order form for this print will be included in your mailing label packet. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this print directly benefit the Foundation.


Earlier in this letter we mentioned the 2020 Annual Fundraising Dinner in Waynesboro. The date will be July 11th from 6-9 pm. Details are still being worked out with the caterer. We are hopeful that the ticket price will remain only $40. If you missed last year’s event, you missed a good one! Watch Pat’s weekly newsletter and this letter, as well as the P Buckley Moss Artist page on Facebook for updates. The event will be listed on EventBrite, which gives you the option of purchasing your tickets online.
