    Stolen quilts and items in Kentucky

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet? On Feb 29th Patsy Thompson's car was broken into and quilts, quilt tops, machines and many other quilting items were stolen. You can check http://www.patsythompsondesigns.com/.../archives/3505 for information and pictures. Maybe if everyone has their eyes open wide we can help find them and return them to her??

    I just posted over there that it might come in handy to know WHERE the quilts were stolen. Kentucky is miles and miles from one end to the other. And the quilts might have been taken to a town across state lines-----IF WE KNEW WHERE TO LOOK.

    Wouldn't it be karma if the thief's house or car was scattered around in the recent storms and someone finds the quilts in a field?

    I am not a violent person but that makes me want to smack them! Only other quilter's fully understand the pain of losing quilts that you've poured your time and effort into. I won't mention the financial aspect because although that hurts too, it's not as devastating as the work lost.

    That is a terrible shame. I hope if not her machine at least the quilt tops will be found and returned to her. That stuff makes me so angry. One reason I leave nothing of value in my truck, physical or emotional.

    Corbin is only about 15-20 miles from where 5 people were killed in KY when the storms passed through.

    So sorry to hear about this awful theft. I hope they are recovered soon. And God bless the people in the area who are going through recovery from these awful storms.
