    Fellow quilters... beware!! I still can't believe what happened to me today. I finally saved up the cash to get the material to do my sisters quilt. Went in town to a small strip mall for fabrics. Had a great time "feeling" the fabric's and finally found exactly what I needed. She is a horse lover but can't do like she use to. Any way, I was putting the first bag in the car which had thread etc in it... turned around and a young woman was running off with my bag of fabric!!!!!!!!!!!! Stunned!!! shock!! She just disappeared when I looked for my phone to call the police.... no one in site.. anywhere? I usually do my shopping online because I have a bum knee, it is such a nice day here today I decided to get some fresh air and headed into town. I know to be aware of my surroundings but this takes the cake. Be very careful out there, you never know who is watching you.

    Be sure and check surrounding dumpsters, when she discovers it is not what she thought she may throw it away. Been there, done that.

    Unbelievable! I hope you're okay though. I can't believe what some people would do. I'm sorry to hear about this happening.

    That's just aweful. I'm terribly sorry this happened to you. I just don't understand why ppl do things like this. Thankfully that's all she did.
