    Sad story. I was in one of the Hancock's in Atlanta recently and asked where the rotary blades were. Behind the counter because the lady said they get stolen - a lot!!!!

    so sad-if she needed the fabric so badly she could have asked for help from the store or from this board.

    Shame on her!!!!!! Quilters have such lovely and generous hearts (at least in my experience) and people like her give us a bad name!

    Hello everyone

    You know I almost want to say that I feel sorry for her. I mean, and addiction at this level is NOT healthy whatever the addiction is! Having said that, I hope that they find the woman (she's no lady) and prosecute her to the full extent of the law!
    I wish to grow into a better person than I am.

    It would surprise you how much of the price you pay for every item you purchase in any retail store is because of theft. The honest customers pay for the theft, it is built into the price. So much stuff ends up at flea markets, ebay and little corner markets. I worked at a grocery for 16 years and it would surprise you what gets stolen and how much. So if you feel sorry for someone caught stealing remember you are paying for that theft with every item you purchase.

    The ladies from thecross stitch shop I visited in Catonville, MD told me people stole their samples off the wall. It is just sad that people feel it is ok to steal.

    In our area we are having trouble with the same thing. The shops have to nail everything down. And a clerk has to fallow you around the store. I love the company so I talk to the girls. But if I ever saw anything I would sing like a bird as loud as I could. One crazy shopper cut the fabric right off the bolt! These are thieves not quilters or woman. Trash not fit to be around humans. Thinking about it don't want them around my dog either.
