The Pocatellecott Award is run out of the Marshall Public Library in Pocatello, Idaho, and the children’s librarian sent a lovely and personal email to say about how much she loved Kelly Hill’s work:
“I could go on and on about the exquisite stitches and zig-zags and careful needlework found on every page. What amazing work you did, and what beautiful embroidery and stitches you produced for us to admire and marvel over.”
