    Just wanted to share this......I am from the UK and yesterday went to the Festival of Quilts show in Birmingham.....bought the conversion free motion foot from the Janome stand which cost me $52...was put in a small bag and off I went.......later I realized to my horror I had lost the bag so I went back to the Janome stand and spoke to the woman who had sold it to me to see if anyone might have handed it.....but they hadn't....then she said ' it was an awful lot to lose at a show...went and pulled another one of the stand and handed it to me and said if you find the bag bring it back'
    I cannot thank her enough for her kindness....I was blown away.

    The story ends on a happy note though...some other really kind person found the bag and handed it in to security...so I was able to take the foot back.................Amazing show, amazing kindness and honesty....

    yes...I have her name and thought I would write...but then I wodered if her boss might be so understanding about her giving stock away....the last thing I would want to do is get her into trouble....but I am going back to the show tomorrow...so I thought I would take her a gift.
