    get the word out, look for this trailer

    the more people know about this the more eyes are looking.

    I am sad to say, that sometime between 9:40AM and 4:10PM today, November
    4th, someone cut the lock on the ball hitch of our trailer and removed
    it from the limited access parking compound at the George Brown
    Convention Center in Houston Texas.

    We have lost all the quilts and quilted items that were not on display,
    our tools, storage bins, customized crates, electrical equipment,
    lighting, tie downs etc. For us this is a severe setback. We will have
    to rent a U-Haul tomorrow to try and get our things home. We have filed
    a police report but we need the help of the public too!

    The trailer is a white 14' Trans American brand with a double axle (two
    wheels each side). IT has a back door that drops down into a ramp and a
    small side door on the passenger side near the front. The license plate
    is 76Z TCN.

    It is being treated as an auto theft by the Houston Police Department.
    If you should see this trailer or have any information that might help
    us find it, please call them!

    We will be busy tonight and tomorrow trying to secure a trailer to rent
    to bring our things home. The Convention Center is letting us leave
    things here overnight, but we are not sure if it will cost us anything
    or not. We have been able to get discarded boxes to pack a lot of our
    stuff and one of the longarm companies gave us their sewouts to wrap
    some of our fragile items.

    Thanks so much. I keep praying that the police will find our stuff and
    the trailer in one piece. Happy quilting!

    I am so sorry this happened to you. I will say a prayer that your things will be returned. We may not know who did this crime but God does!!

    Yes, this was not me. I received this letter and want to spread the news so someone might spot it.

    I hate thieves, much easier to steal from someone then to get a job. I am hoping for a good outcome.

    How rotten! I've heard of thefts of quilts from this show in the past. Such a shame.

    Theft is something that I just do not understand, I was raised (and I raised my children) that if you want something you have to work for it. I would feel too guilty to be able to keep a stolen item, let alone enjoy. Will pray that your items are returned in tact. Good Luck.

    Thank you for the posting. I am so sorry for your loss. It is sad to admit, but this happens all too often in Houston. The trailers and their contents are seldom recovered. There are many wonderful people in Houston. Unfortunately, you had to "meet" one of the others. Hugs....

    Do the owners have any pictures of their trailer, or the quilts that were in the trailer? If we can SEE them, we can keep our eyes out for them...even pin them on Pinterest as missing/stolen. I'll be praying to St Anthony...patron of lost articles.

    Me, too, but it seems we are lacking that kind of moral compass these days, as a general rule. Praying that everything is found in good condition.
