Mini Halfwood Press No. 19
Ritchie's comment: When Tom and Margie Kughler headed for Arizona on their first Printmaking Roadshow venture in their 5th-wheeler home, they met with one of their friends along the way, Marjorie Boice, and when Margie demonstrated printmaking to her and other residents of Marjorie's community, Marjorie decided to get a press for herself. She bought Legacy Mini Halfwood Number 19 from Tom and Margie.
