This is a post from SewCalGal, one of the blogs that I follow that concerns stolen quilting items from Patsy Thompson. The more people who read about this and see her quilts the greater the possibility that these items will be recovered!! Thanks for reading!!
When quilting items are stolen I feel as if foul words were spray painted on our quilting home, making it less of a home where good things of creativity and fun happen. These things break my heart, even when they do not happen to me personally. As such, my heart is very heavy tonight as I've learned that one of us has been violated.
Patsy Thompson posted about her car being broken into, while she was traveling in Corbin, Kentucky on February 29, 2012.
This theft resulted in missing quilts, quilt tops, machines and other items. I hope we can all do our part to keep an eye out for these missing items, as well as to help increase awareness. Maybe, with luck and everyone's help, these missing items can be found and returned to Patsy.
You can read more about this situation on Patsy’s March 3, 2012 blog at http://www.patsythompsondesigns.com/.
If you can help with the recovery of these quilts, please contact Patsy at email@example.com.
Possibly quilters in the Corbin, Kentucky area can help with visiting thrift shops and posting flyers at shelters, quilt shops, quilt guilds and more. What ever it takes, let's rally and try to recover these items for Patsy. Help increase awareness and keep an eye out for these missing items.
This theft has also been reported to the police and to Lost Quilts.com, but your help can make a difference.
