The more I hear about this the more I am afraid to be a traveling quilter with quilts always in my car, or in my luggage. What do people think they are DOING stealing a quilt? It’s just so wrong--- it’s absurd!
Patsy Thompson is an amazing quilter and fiber artist. She recently had her car broken into and posted about her missing quilts HERE.
Yes. That was QUILTS. As in --- More than one.
The quilts were stolen when someone(s) broke into her car in Corbin, KY. They also took her sewing machine and other items.
Read Patsy’s post. You can hear her despair and the sound of defeat in her voice. The quilts that were stolen were not even complete quilts yet, they were pieces in progress – so what good are they to the person who stole them? It’s insane. Seriously. When not even your needlework in progress is safe in a locked car.
This is another one of Patsy’s works in progress…the last photo she had of it, she’d added more to it since this photo was taken and the incomplete top was stolen out of her car. Can you believe it?
Please help me get the word out on this. Please pass the link to this post on to your email lists, your fb walls, your news groups, message boards & flicker groups –wherever quilters gather.
It’s a long shot, as Patsy fears, to find her treasures, but we can at least spread the word and rally round her and help.
Thanks everyone --- this just makes me so sad.
